    I think the simulation takes into account the usage of a petawatt-class laser and intensities higher by a factor of 106 than in Holmlid's experiments.

    The peculiarity of KFeO2, the active phase of K/Fe2O3 catalysts that only exists under appropriate conditions (which means that you cannot really purchase it as a separate compound, it has to be formed in-situ), is that it directly emits…

    In the original 2003 article, which was cited in the recently released review on the subject (in section 1.2) there's more on the aside on the right, in addition to an ultra-low resolution photo (attached below).

    From the data presented in the papers it seems far from reaching break-even just from the nuclear particle-induced electric signal, but I don't think optimizing the output has been the focus in any of these studies. The muons would…

    It's not a secret because the same principle is used for particle detection in Holmlid's studies using an oscilloscope. The muons produced by the decay of mesons from the ultra-dense hydrogen layer cause secondary electron ejection at collector…

    It's probably off-topic to continue the discussion here, but would the Hydroton be expected to be stable outside the the NAE once formed, at least for a limited period of time? Since it's been sometimes compared to metallic hydrogen (which is sometimes…

    You can web-translate this page for that anecdote, but I remember him telling it in a video with English subtitles as well:

    It's also here in a different form:

    To be honest I have no idea about that. Holmlid noted that the spontaneous processes are "somewhat stimulated" by artificial light in his laboratory. This seems a more direct and repeatable process than random external events.

    In a more recent study it was found that using protium instead of deuterium mostly negative muons would be formed.

    For what it's worth, Holmlid thinks that in UDH the nuclear processes take place in the 3- and 4- atom small clusters that are not superfluid, so that could in part be where Ólafsson's hypothesis came from.

    Sveinn Ólafsson has a hypothesis involving the Adler-Bell-Jackiw anomaly, but I have no opinion about that.

    It is likely that similar spontaneous reactions (meaning, occurring without using a Nd:YAG pulsed laser or other relatively energetic impulses) as those observed by Holmlid with his iron oxide catalysts might be observed in…

    Not sure if it will be covered by the next paper, but a more complete theory (description) might be in preparation according to https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/aadda1 (paywalled, published last year):

    There are a couple proposed hypotheses in section 8.7 in the latest general review (open access paper) but I don't think the final word on the exact processes involved or as for why they occur is out yet. As a side note, in what he calls…

    The work function is certainly one factor, but not the only one, otherwise simply having alkali vapors in the atmosphere would have easily produced alkali Rydberg matter clusters in his case. The alkali metal (typically Cesium in…

    Possibly also due to hydrogen spillover effects as the atoms dissociated at the active catalyst sites would migrate on the carbon layers formed. The possible positive role of suitable carbon layers (even deposited from hydrocarbons…

    If you mean making hydrogen permeate through a stainless steel layer (used as a sort of membrane) and desorb in the atomic state in a low-density alkali atmosphere , it might be possible that the atoms can desorb as clusters. From Holmlid's…
