Including nuclear degrees of freedom in a lattice Hamiltonian

  title={Including nuclear degrees of freedom in a lattice Hamiltonian},
  author={Peter L. Hagelstein and Irfan Ullah Chaudhary},
  journal={arXiv: General Physics},
Motivated by many observations of anomalies in condensed matter systems, we consider a new fundamental Hamiltonian in which condensed matter and nuclear systems are described initially on the same footing. Since it may be possible that the lattice will respond to the mass change associated with a excited nuclear state, we adopt a relativistic description throughout based on a many-particle Dirac formalism. This approach has not been used in the past, perhaps due to the difficulty in separating…

Coupling between a deuteron and a lattice
We recently put forth a new fundamental lattice Hamiltonian based on an underlying picture of electrons and deuterons as elementary Dirac particles. Within this model there appears a term in which
Quantum Composites: A Review, and New Results for Models for Condensed Matter Nuclear Science
A composite is made up of constituent particles; the center of mass dynamics is that of a single particle, and the composite can have many internal states and degrees of freedom. The notion of a
Models for Phonon–nuclear Interactions and Collimated X-ray Emission in the Karabut Experiment
Excess heat in the Fleischmann–Pons experiment occurs without commensurate energetic nuclear radiation, which motivated us to seek mechanisms capable of fractionating a large quantum, resulting in
Current status of the theory and modeling effort based on fractionation
The theoretical problems associated with excess heat in the Fleischmann–Pons experiment were once viewed as insurmountable; nevertheless, some progress has been made in the past quarter century.
An Approach to Explaining Cold Fusion
Cold fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction (LENR) is a process that results in various nuclear reactions involving all isotopes of hydrogen within what appear to be ordinary materials at ordinary
Seeking X-rays and Charge Emission from a Copper Foil Driven at MHz Frequencies
The absence of energetic nuclear particles in the Fleischmann–Pons experiment has been interpreted as indicating that a large nuclear quantum can be down-converted into a great many low energy
Observation of Macroscopic Current and Thermal Anomalies, at High Temperature, by Hetero-structures in Thin and Long Constantan Wires Under H2 Gas
Since 2011, we introduced into LENR field, the use of a Constantan (Cnst) alloy to absorb/adsorb proper amounts of H2 or D2 and to generate thermal anomalies even at low temperatures (>200◦C). We
Attempted Replication of Excess Heat in the Letts Dual-laser Experiment
By attempting a nearly exact replication of prior published work, we test the claim that release of non-chemical excess heat from loaded palladium deuteride (PdD) can be triggered by the application
Temperature Dependence of Excess Power in Two-laser Experiments
Data published previously on the two-laser experiment shows that the excess heat depends on temperature, and is mostly zero in the absence of a magnetic field. A new experiment shows higher excess


A Theoretical Formulation for Problems in Condensed Matter Nuclear Science
Over the years theorists have adopted a wide variety of approaches to theoretical problems in condensed matter nuclear science. If one starts with a formulation adapted to condensed matter, then the
Kinematic mass of a composite in the many-particle Dirac model
We are interested in the energy-momentum relation for a moving composite in relativistic quantum mechanics in many-particle Dirac models. For a manifestly covariant model one can apply the Lorentz
Bird's Eye View of Phonon Models for Excess Heat in the Fleischmann-Pons Experiment
Over the past several years, we have been developing models relevant to excess heat in the Fleischmann–Pons experiment. Here we review some of the key issues, and give an account of some of the

Energy development from elemental transmutations in biological systems. Final report December 1977--April 1978
It was concluded that elemental transmutations were indeed occurring in life organisms and were probably accompanied by a net energy gain, and MgATP can be considered to be a cyclotron on a molecular scale.
