Emissions of γ-rays from the cold-fusion cells used by Pons and Fleischmann were monitored in Pons' laboratory at the University of Utah by Nal detectors nearly continuously over a five-week period. No evidence of fusion activity was observed above power limits varying between 10−12 and 10−6 W for the known fusion reactions. In addition, neutron-track detectors indicated an integrated upper limit of approximately 1 emitted neutron per second from any of the cold-fusion cells over a period of 67… 
Concerning the detection of neutrons and γ-rays from cells containing palladium cathodes polarized in heavy water
SummaryIt is shown that neutrons generated in «cold fusion» cells can be detected following thermalization by means of high-resolution spectroscopy of the γ-rays generated by the (n, γ) reaction in
Neutron and gamma-ray emission from palladium deuteride under supercritical conditions
This paper reports on palladium which is exposed to pressurized deuterium gas at 60 atm and 198 K and the temperature is cycled up to 593 K, beyond the critical point for palladium deuteride. Two
Reproducible and Repeatable Generation of 4-He, γ-rays, and Heat in Light and Heavy Waters at Room Temperature
The extraordinary claim of observing nuclear fusion products and excess heat during heavy water electrolysis at room temperature was sensationalized in 1989. Unfortunately, it was rejected quickly by
Alternatives in Low Energy Fusion
Though fusion reactions occur almost ubiquitously in the Universe and can be studied quite easily in the laboratory, power production by light-element fusion is an extremely difficult technological
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
KELEA (Kinetic Energy Limiting Electrostatic Attraction) Offers an Alternative Explanation to Existing Concepts Regarding Wave-Particle Duality, Cold Fusion and Superconductivity
Existing explanations for several major phenomena in physics may need to be reconsidered in light of the description of a natural force termed KELEA (kinetic energy limiting electrostatic
Can binuclear atoms solve the cold fusion puzzle
The internal and external inconsistencies of cold fusion phenomena are discussed. It is shown that most of these inconsistencies can be removed by assuming the formation of binuclear atoms that have


Cosmic‐ray neutron demography
The equilibrium spatial and energy distribution is calculated for neutrons made in the earth's atmosphere by cosmic rays. The neutron current leaking into space is found, and the density of neutron
Monte Carlo Transport of Electrons and Photons
This book is a report on a conference held in September, 1987, to discuss the simulation of electron and photon transport by Monte Carlo techniques. The book brings together in one place a large
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
