I would like to direct your attention to a paper describing how my theory relates to the Mizuno method. This paper and other related information can be found at LENRexplained.com (http://lenrexplained.com/2019/…rocess-and-storms-theory/). I'm sticking my neck out anticipating that the Mizuno method will be successfully replicated. If so, this paper anticipates how the method can be explored and used to support my model. I offer my theory as the only one that shows a consistent relationship between a plausible NAE and the nature of the nuclear reaction while being totally consist with all observations. The idea might be wrong, or at least incomplete, but it does provide a path to understanding about how and why LENR occurs. Hopefully, this paper will generate enough interest for this idea to be discussed in detail.
I would like to comment on the present subject of interest, i.e. codeposition. This is nothing more than a variation of the electroplating process about which a great deal is known because Pd was used as a coating on electrical contacts when it was cheaper than gold. Several efforts, including Coolesence and my studies, were made to replicate the claim by SPAWAR without success. This is not an easy method to replicate because too many of the variable are unknown and can not be controlled. As is common in this field, no effort is made to understand the basic chemistry of a process. For example, an assumption was made by SPAWAR that Cl2 was generated at the anode when actually CLO was produced, which would change the calculations on which excess energy was based. We see this same lack of insightful understanding when attempts were made to replicate the Rossi claim. At no time did Rossi actually use the claimed heating of Ni+LiAl4, yet people spent a lot of wasted time exploring this method without paying any attention to the behavior that would be expected and to the method Rossi actually used As result, Rossi is considered a fraud while the real evidence is ignored.
