Nuclear phenomena in low-energy nuclear reaction research

Abstract

This is a comment on Storms (Naturwissenschaften 97:861–881, 2010) Status of Cold Fusion, Naturwissenschaften, 97:861–881. This comment provides the following corrections: other nuclear phenomena observed in low-energy nuclear reactions aside from helium-4 make significant contributions to the overall energy balance; and normal hydrogen, not just heavy hydrogen, produces excess heat.

Keywords

LENRs Low-energy nuclear reactions Cold fusion Energy balance
