Comparison between Chemonuclear Fusion Theory and Bologna Experiment
Due to the lack of detailed information on the Bologna experiment, it is not possible to compare rigorously the present prediction and the experimental results. Nevertheless, the observation results of Bologna group seem to be suggestive some coincidences of the prediction in Section 12 [29-33].
1) In Bologna, no 5.5 MeV gamma ray was observed as prediction i). Instead later, the 0.511 MeV annihilation gamma ray might be detected and correspond to the occurence of the reaction Eq.(8).
2) The observed power output of the Bologna device charging some tens gram Ni and ordinary hydrogen gas might be some kW. This is consistent with prediction ii), iii) and iv).
3) The Bologna data on the power output is said to be gained through supplying D2-gas, which correspond to prediction iii).
4) Corresponding to prediction ii), iii), iv) and vi), a very small percent fraction of Ni might be transmuted into Cu during a few months continued operation of device. A small part of annihilation gamma rays observed might be due to the positron decay of 60Cu produced in the 58Ni(3He; p)60Cu reaction.
