The beryllium-8 nuclei are elongated (as you may guess, two stable double magic alpha particles prefer to co-exist independently within Be-8, so that the resulting structure resembles dumbbell or binary star system rather than sphere), which opens the way for low-dimensional physics, based on shielding of longitudinal waves of vacuum. The Yukawa force interactions along connection line of such an elongated nuclei gets enforced, which promotes the formation of new bosons of force. The long distance analogy of this behavior are for example filaments of dark matter and/or Allais effect during solar eclipses.
another kind of fifth force?
"Strictly speaking, beryllium-8 isn't a nuclide at all because it is un-bound (it possesses a positive not negative binding energy).
The kind of fifth force, which arises in Kaluza–Klein theory, where the universe has extra dimensions, or in supergravity or string theory is the Yukawa force
" which opens the way for low-dimensional physics, based on shielding of longitudinal waves of vacuum."
Could this structure also be stabilised by the 'Lattice"
Of course yes. I presume, that the cold fusion runs primarily due to Astroblaster/Mossbauer effect (multiplication of momentum) during collinear collisions of atoms within metal lattices. Once the atom nuclei emerge along a single line, then the shielding pseudoforces would manifest itself like quantum entanglement, but their character will be more complex. Such a forces would glue the product of collisions for a moment, which could enhance the cold fusion and neutron exchange. It's worth to note, that Storm's hydrotons and Holmlid dense hydrogen are also formed with long chains of atoms, which must be glued somehow together.
The entanglement of atom nuclei would also lower the Coulomb barrier and enhance the binding forces between atom nuclei. It's evident, these forces should manifest more at low temperatures (where atoms are keeping their order better) and inside negatively curved surfaces (cracks and dislocations of metal lattices eliminate virtual photons, which mediate competetive dipole forces). The only question is, how much such an effects are really significant for total yield of cold fusion, because I presume, that the cold fusion is synergetic result of multiple similar factors: electron shielding, hydride formation, etc..
" because I presume, that the cold fusion is synergetic result of multiple similar factors: electron shielding, hydride formation, etc.."
sounds reasonable to me.....
and might include directed electrical stimulation by ~50-150eV?
Why not, but such a stimulation should have some tangible physical mechanism behind it (surface plasmons or polaritons due to impact of ions from plasma, EPR or nuclear magnetic resonance). We should distinguish environmental factors and experimental tools, how to achieve them.
The Haber Process catalysts 1904-1913
were developed by suck and see without the benefit of much theory/instrumentation.
"The most popular catalysts are based on iron promoted with K2O, CaO, SiO2etc.The original Haber–Bosch reaction chambers used [[osmium]] as the catalyst, but it was available in extremely small quantities. Haber noted [[uranium]] was almost as effective and easier to obtain than osmium. Under Bosch's direction in 1909, the BASF researcher [[Alwin Mittasch]] discovered a much less expensive [[iron]]-based catalyst, which is still used today."
Perhaps there is some "tangible physical mechanism" that is available in 2017 for industrialising this newly discovered phenomenon
Anyone,including Axil, got ideas?
