  • While progress in fusion research continues with magnetic and inertial confinement, alternative approaches—such as Coulomb explosions of deuterium clusters and ultrafast laser–plasma interactions—also provide insight into basic processes and technological applications. However, attempts to produce fusion in a room temperature solid-state setting, including ‘cold’ fusion and ‘bubble’ fusion, have met with deep scepticism. Here we report that gently heating a pyroelectric crystal in a deuterated… CONTINUE READING
