    The addition of three superabundant vacancy (SAV) phases, γ (Pd7VacD6–8), δ (Pd3VacD4 – octahedral), and δ′ (Pd3VacD4 – tetrahedral) to the palladium – isotopic hydrogen phase diagram was recently reported [1]. Also, in that study, production of excess heat from a nuclear source during electrolysis in heavy water indicated portions of the palladium (Pd) – deuterium (D) specimen were in the ordered δ phase, while a drop in resistance of the Pd during excess heat, with an increase in temperature, indicated portions of the specimen had shifted to the ordered δ′ phase. Both δ and δ′, create intersecting channels along the edges of the unit cells which are in effect long strings of Pd lattice vacancies for fast electron transport or a deuteron resonance condition. At high D/Pd ratio, the Pd-D alloy can be multiphase. An estimate of the volume fraction (fv) of δ phase is made from the amount of nuclear energy measured. An estimate of fv of δ′ is made from the measurement of the change in resistivity of the overall multiphase Pd-D alloy using the rule of mixtures. Both δ and δ′ have low volume fractions with fv(δ) ≈ 0.03% and fv(δ′) ≈ 5%. These experimental measurements suggest that δ is the nuclear active environment (NAE) for low energy nuclear reactions (LENR) while δ′ is likely a high conducting state (phase). Which interstitial site (octahedral or tetrahedral) is occupied by isotopic hydrogen would determine whether the phase is nuclear active or highly conductive. These two phases are distinct and can coexist as minor volumetric components (phases) because they are both of low volume fractions, share the same composition (arrangement of Pd and lattice vacancy sites, and can also share the same D/Pd ratio), and result from hydrogen-induced vacancy formation. Thus, portions of the specimen can be producing nuclear energy (excess heat) while other portions can be highly conductive.

  • Yet another explanation for “cold fusion”. This one left me a bit baffled.

    Abstract

    A simple universal physical mechanism hidden for more than half a century is unexpectedly discovered from a calculation of low excitation antihydrogen. For ease of reference, this mechanism is named Gailitis resonance. We demonstrate, in great detail, that Gailitis resonances are capable of explaining p+7Li low energy nuclear fusion, d-d fusion on a Pd lattice and the initial transient fusion peak in muon catalyzed fusion. Hopefully, these examples will help to identify Gailitis resonances in other systems.

  • And from the other side, these authors claim to have finally explained how Fleischmann and Pons did it, and the proved experimentally that is just recombination what causes excess heat. And they publish in the same Journal than Fleischmann and Pons!

    Recombination cannot cause excess heat. A researcher might mistake recombination for excess heat if he does not measure how much gas an open cell is producing. However, all electrochemists measure the gas, and they also measure how much electrolyte is lost. See p. 28:

    Steve Jones tried to convince me that recombination can also explain the excess heat from closed cells, such as McKubre's. That was annoying. I thought to myself, "either this guy is a fool, or he thinks I am a fool."


    Melvin Miles wrote a response to this article, in a letter to the editor. It reads, in part:


    ". . . [T]he authors' proposed explanation for the large Fleischmann-Pons effects involves a cyclic process from D2 to atomic D atoms and back to D2. From the First Law of Thermodynamics, there can be no net energy changes for any cyclic process because U, H, G, A and S are all thermodynamic State Functions. Furthermore, the enthalpy of formation for PdDx is actually exothermic (about -17.5 kJ/mol D), and the reverse reaction back to D2 is therefore endothermic and certainly not a source of energy for the Fleischmann-Pons effect. The Dabs for palladium should never be thermodynamically confused with gaseous atomic D atoms."

  • NASA - Transmutations observed from pressure cycling palladium silver metals with deuterium gas

    Hydrogen, deuterium, and helium gases were separately cycled through a Johnson-Matthey purifier containing coiled palladium silver alloy tubing: Pd25Ag (75 wt% Pd and 25 wt% Ag). During the cycling of D2 gas, evidence of anomalous heat production wasobserved. However, during the cycling of H2 and He, very little (H2) or no (He) unusual heat events were observed. After cycling the D2 gas through the coiled tubing for several months, Pd25Ag samples showed an increase in Cu and Fe compared with the amounts in unexposed Pd25Ag. Chromium, manganese, and zinc were detected in gas-cycled Pd25Ag samples, whereas they were not detected in unexposed Pd25Ag samples. In particular, Zn was present in the gas-cycled Pd25Ag material in larger quantities than either Cr or Mn. Although a small amount of Cu was present in the Pd25Ag coil before the D2 gas cycling, 7 times more was present after the cycling. Multiple material characterization techniques were used to obtain both pre-test and post-test elemental composition. The results indicate that novel post-test elements, primarily on the surface, were created by unknown nuclear mechanisms at low energy.

    Abstract

    The anomalous heat effect reported in the paper, “Excess heat evolution from nanocomposite samples under exposure to hydrogen isotope gases” by Kitamura et al. published in the Int. J. Hydrogen Energy 43, pp. 16,187–16,200 (2018), is investigated in the science of the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP) established in these 30 years. It is concluded that the effect is a normal event in the CFP consistent with many events observed in materials with various components and compositions composed of host elements and hydrogen isotopes.

  • This paper just showed in my Google Academic Search, from February 2020. It is not really a great journal nor a great paper, but the researcher studied Simulations of electrolysis of water (From puré to desalination reject brine) with microwaves and found it to have an energetic efficiency above 100% and claims the explanation is from LENR happening in the plasma. He then proceeds to validate the model experimentally. The researcher is from Florida A&M University:

    Full pdf Can be read here:

    http://www.ijewfn.org/index.php/ijewfn/article/download/16/1

    The key paragraph is this one:


    The basic thermodynamic analysis of the experimental studies revealed a consistent energy efficiency of the process greater than 100%, (especially in the 20 V trials) even though the magnetron used for microwave generation was only 55% energy efficient. This indicates that Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) are occurring in the dielectric barrier plasma discharge in the water in the electrolytic environment. Further research is necessary to understand and advance the fundamental science behind such LENR as well as to assess and validate the mechanism of such reactions.


    Since this paper is about production of H with efficiency above one, I think We can follow the discussion of it in this thread:

  • Plasma parameter modulation of atmospheric pressure dielectric barrier discharge dual-frequency excitation


    (1) By modulating the amplitude ratio of two excitation sources, the

    averaged electron density and temperature are effectively influenced.

    And there exists a significant nonlinear coupling effect during

    the discharge process due to the dual-frequency interaction,

    and with an appropriate application of the amplitude ratio of these

    dual components, the electron density can be upraised significantly.


    (2) The investigation of electric field power absorbed by electrons,

    together with the conducting current density, gas voltage, and excitation

    intensity, has shown that the electron density and temperature

    are modulated effectively by tailoring the averaged electron

    power absorbance.


    (3) The temporal evolution of the total discharge current density under

    different ratios of voltage amplitudes is analyzed by the FFT spectrum,

    and the nonlinear coupling effect plays a key role in leading

    to the spectrum variation.


    (4) On the basis, an extra modulation by means of phase-shift is

    explored. A tuning of the phase differences between the dual frequency

    excitation sources also has a direct influence on the averaged

    electron density and temperature, which enables one to

    optimize plasma parameters with a large operation window.

    Abstract


    A container was designed based on the assumption that the abnormal exothermic phenomenon of hydrogen (deuterium) metal is related to the hydrogen flux inside the metal. The container consists of an inner container and an outer container, and the inner container is filled with deuterium or hydrogen. The outer container is evacuated, the inner container is heated, and abnormal heat generation is observed. Both hydrogen and deuterium gas produce excess heat power; deuterium produces more heat, lasting longer. When the inner container is filled with hydrogen a maximum of 5 watts of excess heat power is observed, lasting about 3 hours. When the inner container is filled with deuterium it produces higher power than hydrogen, with maximum excess heat power up to 13 watts, also lasting about 3 hours.
