  journal={Journal of Fusion Energy},
The major reaction products that have been possibly associated with cold fusion reactions are neutrons, protons, tritium, He-3, He-4, internal conversion electrons, and gamma radiation. The branching ratios and relative reaction rates for these products are examined for consistency with cold fusion experiments. Both theoretical calculations and experimental data are examined and presented. The He-4 plus internal conversion reaction has been proposed to explain the absence of neutrons or gamma…

Review of Experimental Observations About the Cold Fusion Effect
AbstractThe experimental literature describing the cold fusion phenomenon is reviewed. The number and variety of careful experimental measurements of heat, tritium, neutron, and helium production


Isotopic Hydrogen Fusion in Metals
Nuclear fusion between deuterons under ambient conditions has been observed in the metal cathode of an electrolysis cell with an electrolyte of heavy water. The evidence for the fusion reaction is
Two innocent chemists look at cold fusion
The authors propose that the large energy release reported in the experiments of Fleischmann, Pons, and Hawkins may be the consequence of {sup 2}H fusion accelerated through screening by neighboring
Observation of cold nuclear fusion in condensed matter
When a current is passed through palladium or titanium electrodes immersed in an electrolyte of deuterated water and various metal salts, a small but significant flux of neutrons is detected. Fusion
