George H. Miley

Dr. George H. MileyDr. George H. Miley is Professor Emeritus of Nuclear, Plasma and Radiological Engineering and Electrical/Computer Engineering at the U. of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He is also director emeritus of the U of IL Fusion Studies Laboratory. Apart from these, he is the founder and President of a small company, NPL Associates, Inc., which provides consultancy in alternate energy problems including fuel cells and energy sources. NPL recently spun off LENUCO LLC to develop LENR power cells.

Dr. Miley is internationally recognized for his innovative research contributions in various areas of alternate energy sources and energy conversion technology. He is a Fellow of the ANS, APS, and IEEE, and Associate Fellow of the AIAA. He has received a variety of awards for research including the Preparata Medal 2006-2007 for his research in condensed matter nuclear science; 2006 Integrity in Research Award for fusion research,; 2004 ANS Radiation and Isotopes Research Award; 2003 IEEE Fusion Technology Award; 1996 Edward Teller Medal for ICF research; and the 1993 ANS Fusion Energy Achievement Award. He is a Guggenheim Fellow, a Senior NATO Fellow and is recognized in Who’s Who in America. He has supervised 56 PhD theses and numerous MS theses. He has authored or coauthored over 300 journal articles and holds a half dozen patents. He is the immediate past Chairperson of the ANS Isotopes and Radiation Division and prior chairperson of the ANS Aerospace Nuclear Science and Technology Group. In addition, Dr. Miley was the founding editor of the ANS Journal, Fusion Science and Technology and emeritus editor-in-chief of two Cambridge University Press journals: Laser and Particle Beams, and Journal of Plasma Physics.

Dr. Miley has attended most of the ICCF meetings since their start. He began LENR research shortly after the original Pons-Fleishmann announcement and has studied a number of phenomena ranging from light-water Ni electrolysis, x-ray production, charged particle emission, transmutations, and most recently gas loaded nanoparticle power cells.
