Possible ways to achieve cold fusion. I

  • 29 Accesses


Possible ways to develop alloys in which the distance between interstitial positions is small are discussed. The potential wells in these alloys would have to be deep enough to capture a deuteron. The substitution of relatively small ions for relatively large ones in a crystal results in a displacement of the deuterons toward the smaller ions. Accordingly, isolated smaller ions in such a substitutional alloy would become deuteron collectors. A possibility for increasing the deuteron density near vacancies in subtraction solutions is also discussed.
