The return of cold fusion

Twenty years after the first partially successful attempt to cold fusion, a new experiment seems to have reopened the hopes of obtaining nuclear reactions at low energy (LENR low-energy nuclear reactions).

This was announced by a team of researchers led by Pamela Mosier-Boss of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center San Diego (California), with a study presented at the annual meeting of American Chemical Society, the first visible evidence of the production of neutrons, the particles subatomic whose presence demonstrates the atomic reaction occurred.

It was 1989 when Martin Fleischmann and Stanley Pons showed that it has obtained experimentally the Cold Fusion, arousing great outcry in the scientific community. Fusion is the reaction that takes place inside of stars, their source of energy, able to reproduce in the laboratory at room temperature this process would be an amazing achievement.

Further research then disappointed initial expectations: the rare attempts (for example, those of 2000 and 2002) to reproduce the results of 1989 and have not convinced the path of nuclear reaction at low energy has not proved viable as an alternative to "clean" nuclear fission, which is based on the common operation of nuclear power.

The testing of Mosier-Boss was conducted by dipping in a solution of palladium chloride and heavy water (water with deuterium atoms instead of hydrogen) an electrode of gold or nickel, which was passed current to trigger the reaction with a process called co-deposition to detect traces of particles emitted during the reaction has been used a plastic called Cr-39. On this material, at the end of the tests small signs were observed that would be produced only by the neutrons generated by nuclear fusion of deuterium. A small sign that indicates the possibility of triggering the so-called laboratory nuclear reactions at low energy, which are the basis of atomic fusion processes at low temperatures.

Comments for The return of cold fusion

Cold fusion has been widely replicated

Replications of cold were not rare at all. By 1990 roughly 100 were reported. By now, cold fusion has been successfully replicated thousands of time in over 200 major laboratories. I have a collection of 1,200 peer-reviewed journal papers on cold fusion, which I copied from the library at Los Alamos. I have 2,000 other papers from proceedings and official reports published by national laboratories in the U.S., India, Italy and elsewhere, and the U.S. Navy. I have uploaded a bibliography and 500 papers here:

new theory explains cold fusion

Based on the new nuclear model of Quantum Ring Theory, a new theory is proposed to explain the results obtained by Pamela Mosier-Boss cold fusion experiment, published in last March.

Guglinski's theory on cold fusion can be tested

An email was sent to Pamela Mosier-Boss in 11 April 2009, suggesting to use an oscillator in her experiment.

The email is ahead.

Dear Pamela

My theory can be tested by your experiment.

My idea is to use an oscillator capable to increase the oscillatory motion of the molecules D-D within the Pd lattice, by stimulating the resonance D-D.

If you succeed to stimulate the resonance D-D , we have to expect a growth in the rate of fusion D-D and also in the rate of neutrons emission by unity of time.

The oscillator I suggest is the following:

1- A glass buble is fulfilled by heavy hydrogen (D-D molecules).

The buble must be placed close to the Pd lattice deposited in the cathode.

2- Two electrodes are connected inside the buble.

3- A high voltage is applied to the electrodes, producing an electric discharge that crosses the gas of molecules D-D.

4- The molecules D-D into the buble are excited, and they emit photons in a frequency which is a sub-multiple of the frequency oscillation of the molecules D-D that fulfill the Pd lattice.

5- The molecules D-D within the Pd lattice get resonance with the frequency of emission by the D-D molecules into the buble, and the oscillation of D-D within Pd is stimulated to increase its amplitude.

6- I suppose such stimulation of resonance may increase the velocity of D-D fusion within the Pd lattice.

You can use a laser that hits the molecules D-D within the glass buble, instead of using an electrical discharge.

The best would be to build a laser which emission is produced by D-D molecules. In such case there is no need to have a glass buble, because the laser would be applied directly to the region of Pd lattice.

Perhaps you have to try the three alternatives.

Itís my opinion you should have to try it.

After all, we are in front to a new Physics, and we have to try any new idea if it makes sense.

Good luck in your attempt, if you decide to do it.
