@cydfonia. Revealing in that Fran gave a very clear explanation of a complex system. Including details of the electrical inputs that i had not seen before.ick
right now I am listening to Shinya Narits from Iwate University. He is talking about (for example) Pd foil which is ion-etched using Ar to. This has been found to improve the results. The foil was then sputtered on the etched surface using Nickel. The hydrogen loading by exposure to 5 Bar. for 24 hours, and then the sample was put into a vacuum and heated to desorb the hydrogen. This caused additional heating effects (fairly low level). This was presented with cautionary notes about the calorimetric methods employed.
Reminds me a little of that old Lord R's paper.
