It is quite big, and it will require deep analysis as it looks very rich...
Section 3 is describing careful work with codeposition like Spawar did, CR39 analysisi, gamma/X analysis.
Section 4 is more prospective, and section 5 refers to the mass of work already done.
There are huge volume of references, each of which should be analysed.
Besides LENR, the Pd/H(D) system exhibits superconductivity. Palladium itself does not superconduct. However, it was found that H(D)/Pd does and that the critical temperatures of the deuteride are about 2.5 K higher than those of hydride (at the same atomic ratios).19 This is the ‘inverse’ isotope effect. In these early measurements, the loading of H(D) in the Pd lattice was less than unity, i.e. H(D):Pd < 1. Later Tripodi et al. 20 developed a method of loading and stabilizing 50 µm diameter Pd wires with H(D):Pd loadings greater than one. These samples have exhibited near room temperature superconductivity. Examples of measured superconducting transitions of PdHx samples are shown in Figure 1-2.
We believe the two phenomena, LENR and high Tc superconductivity, are related and that both need to be investigated in order to gain an understanding of the processes occurring inside the Pd lattice. The scope of this effort was to design and conduct experiments to elucidate the underlying physics of nuclear reactions occurring inside Pd-D nano-alloys and to make that data available to theoreticians to aid in their ability to develop a theory that explains how and why low energy nuclear reactions can occur within a palladium lattice. Development of such a theory is needed to provide insight on how to optimize the LENR processes occurring in the Pd lattice.
In this report, results of the following experiments will be discussed:
1. Analysis of the CR-39 detectors used in the SRI replication of the SSC-Pacific codeposition experiment
2. Summary of experiments that rule out chemical/mechanical origins for the tracks observed in CR-39 used in Pd/D co-deposition experiments
3. Comparison of DT and Pd/D co-deposition generated triple tracks in CR-39 detectors
4. Pd/D co-deposition experiments conducted using uranium as a witness material 3
5. The apparent discrepancy between CR-39 and X-ray measurements to detect charged particles
6. Temporal measurements of radiation, neutrons, and charged particles
7. Thermal measurements
8. Preparation and characterization of stabilized Pd foils and nano-deposits
