Cold fusion , low energy nuclear reactions , or dark nuclear synthesis ?

  title={Cold fusion , low energy nuclear reactions , or dark nuclear synthesis ?},
  author={Matti Pitk{\"a}nen},
Steven Krivit has written three books about the history of cold fusion/low energy nuclear reactions (LENR). These books provide excellent overall view about the subject and inspired to develop further the TGD inspired model of cold fusion (as I have called the phenomenon for historical reasons) at more detailed level and compare it to Widom-Larsen model (WL). WL has three questionable assumptions. The basic idea is that proton is transformed to neutron by weak interactions so that Coulomb wall…

On the Three Findings by LIGO
During the last year, LIGO collaboration has made three important discoveries suggesting the possibility of new physics. Gravitational waves were detected from what was identified as a merging of
Comparison of Electric Universe Hypothesis & TGD
Electric Universe scenario in its extreme form postulates that electromagnetic fields are enough to explain gravitation and even nuclear fusion. From TGD viewpoint this vision is unrealistic. Wes
Cosmic String Model for Formation of Galaxies, & DNA Structure
The view about the role of new nuclear physics predicted by TGD in the model of solar interior gives excellent guidelines for attempts to develop a more detailed understanding about TGD counterparts
TGD inspired solution to three cosmological and astrophysical anomalies
I learned within a period of week about two cosmological anomalies. The first anomaly is the oscillations discovered by Kotov. Second anomaly is the ionization of the interstellar gas. About the
Could Cancer Be a Disease of Magnetic Body
Li and Heroux have made a highly interesting discovery. The treatment of cancer cell population by 60 Hz oscillating magnetic field with extremely small strength above 25 nT leads to a reduction of
Quantum Self-organization by h_eff Changing Phase Transitions
The TGD based model for biological self-organization relies on the hierarchy h eff = nh 0 of effective Planck constants labelling dark phases of ordinary particles residing at magnetic flux quanta.
Life-like properties observed in very simple systems
The physicists working in Emory University have made very interesting discovery. The very simple system studied exhibits what authors call self-organized bi-stability making phase transitions between
About the Nottale ’ s formula for h gr and the possibility that Planck length l P and CP 2 length R are related
Nottale’s formula for the gravitational Planck constant ~gr = GMm/v0 involves parameter v0 with dimensions of velocity. I have worked with the quantum interpretation of the formula but the physical
Exploration Could Dark Protons & Electrons Be Involved with Dielectric Breakdown in Gases & Conduction in Electrolytes ?
The TGD inspired model for ”cold fusion” led to ask whether electrolytes are really understood in standard chemistry. The question of my friend related to di-electric breakdown in gases led me to
Cosmology in Crisis
Standard cosmology is in crisis. There are a lot of anomalies but two of them have received special attention recently. The most recent anomaly is due to the findings that the so called lensing


Cold Fusion Again
During the years I have developed two models of cold fusion and in this article these models are combined together. The basic idea of TGD based model of cold is that cold fusion occurs in two steps.
Support for TGD-based Model of Cold Fusion from Recent Development
The recent article by Holmlid and Kotzias reports details about the superdense phase of protonium/deuterium postulated by Holmlid to explain cold fusion. To my surprise this phase turned out to have
Laser-driven nuclear fusion D+D in ultra-dense deuterium: MeV particles formed without ignition
The short D-D distance of 2.3 pm in the condensed material ultra-dense deuterium means that it is possible that only a small disturbance is required to give D+D fusion. This disturbance could be an
New Particle Physics Predicted by TGD: Part II
TGD predicts a lot of new physics and it is quite possible that this new physics becomes visible at LHC. Although the calculational formalism is still lacking, p-adic length scale hypothesis allows
Low-Energy Nuclear Reactions in Metals
In order to investigate the interplay between nuclei and their surroundings, we have studied deuteron induced fusion reactions in metals at very low energies. We summarize the results on the
On Hydrinos Again
Randell Mills has proposed his notion of hydrino atom to explain anomalous energy production and EUV radiation in 10-20 nm range taking place in certain electrolytic system and having no chemical
Theoretical Standard Model Rates of Proton to Neutron Conversions Near Metallic Hydride Surfaces
The process of radiation induced electron capture by protons or deuterons producing new ultra low momentum neutrons and neutrinos may be theoretically described within the standard field theoretical
First indications of the existence of a 38 MeV light scalar boson
We present evidence for the existence of a light scalar particle that most probably couples exclusively to gluons and quarks. Theoretical and phenomenological arguments are presented to support the
Absorption of nuclear gamma radiation by heavy electrons on metallic hydride surfaces
Low energy nuclear reactions in the neighborhood of metallic hydride surfaces may be induced by ultra-low momentum neutrons. Heavy electrons are absorbed by protons or deuterons producing ultra low
More Precise TGD Based View about Quantum Biology and Prebiotic Evolution (Part I)
In this work I try to clarify the relation of the basic notions of TGD and of TGD inspired biology to the ordinary bio-chemistry. I also try to improve my understanding about work of Frohlich, Del
