   This is the CFRL News (in English) No. 47 for Cold Fusion researchers published by Dr. H. Kozima, now at the Physics Department and Low Energy Nuclear Laboratory, Portland State University, Oregon, USA.

   CFP (Cold Fusion Phenomenon) stands for gnuclear reactions and accompanying events occurring in solids with high densities of hydrogen isotopes (H and/or D) in ambient radiation.h

1. gNew Neutron State in Transition-Metal Hydrides and Cold Fusion Phenomenonh by Hideo Kozima

 is accepted for presentation at ANS Annual Meeting 2003 (June 1-5, 2003, San Diego, CA) and to be published in Transactions of American Nuclear Society. In this paper, theoretical development after JCF4 will be presented. Following is its Introduction.


The Cold fusion phenomenon (CFP) has been studied for more than 13 years without a consistent explanation based on modern physics. Relying on theories to infer the nature of neutron wave functions at the excited bound levels that are less than 1 eV from zero, we have shown that CFP in transition metal hydrides and deuterides is explained by the formation of neutron valence bands consisting of excited neutron states in metal nuclei mediated by occluded hydrogen (deuterium).
