Thermal Resonance Fusion - http://arxiv.org/abs/1507.01650

QuoteDisplay MoreABSTRACT

We first show a possible mechanism to create a new type of nuclear fusion, thermal resonance

fusion, i.e. low energy nuclear fusion with thermal resonance of light nuclei or atoms, such as

deuterium or tritium. The fusion of two light nuclei has to overcome the Coulomb barrier between

these two nuclei to reach up to the interacting region of nuclear force. We found nuclear fusion

could be realized with thermal vibrations of crystal lattice atoms coupling with light atoms at

low energy by resonance to overcome this Coulomb barrier. Thermal resonances combining with

tunnel effects can greatly enhance the probability of the deuterium fusion to the detectable level.

Our low energy nuclear fusion mechanism research - thermal resonance fusion mechanism results

demonstrate how these light nuclei or atoms, such as deuterium, can be fused in the crystal of

metal, such as Ni or alloy, with synthetic thermal vibrations and resonances at different modes and

energies experimentally. The probability of tunnel effect at different resonance energy given by the

WKB method is shown that indicates the thermal resonance fusion mode, especially combined with

the tunnel effect, is possible and feasible. But the penetrating probability decreases very sharply

when the input resonance energy decreases less than 3 keV, so for thermal resonance fusion, the

key point is to increase the resonance peak or make the resonance sharp enough to the acceptable

energy level by the suitable compound catalysts, and it is better to reach up more than 3 keV to

make the penetrating probability larger than 10^−10.
