Abstract:

Hydrons are charge-neutral, unstable particles formed from an electron and hydrogen isotope nucleus. Recent theoretical work by our company has suggested that certain selected nuclides, in low concentrations, may undergo hydron-mediated nuclear reactions that may be responsible for some of the anomalous experimental observations in heavy-water, electrolytic cells. We propose to design and build small experimental cells that have been appropriately modified to include known amounts of selected nuclides. Baseline and comparison experiments will be performed to test for enhanced nuclear activity in the presence of the selected nuclides. In addition, further theoretical analysis will be performed to suggest alternative reactions with possible significance to energy release from hydrogen-isotope loaded metals.
