Understanding Reproducibility : Topology Is the Key
- Peter Glück
Statistics on the initiation of the Fleischmann-Pons effect are rather poor. Reports presented at the First Annual Conference on Cold Fusion have indicated that, at best, only ca 1/10 of all attempts were successful in either producing excess enthalpy or yielding products associated with nuclear reactions. Here, we show that the Fleischmann-Pons effect can be reproducibly and rapidly initiated by employing electrodes prepared by electrodeposition from Pd salts in the presence of evolving deuterium. The effectiveness of this procedure is examined in terms of tritium production.
