   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


   This is the CFRL News (in English) No. 53 for Cold Fusion researchers published by Dr. H. Kozima, now at the Cold Fusion Research Laboratory, Shizuoka, Japan.

This issue contains following item:

1. Louis de Broglie Foundation took up Cold Fusion Phenomenon at its Symposium

2. JCF5 was held in Kobe, Japan

3DInternational Society of Condensed Matter Nuclear Science (ISCMNS) is established


1. Louis de Broglie Foundation took up Cold Fusion Phenomenon at its Symposium

A symposium on the Cold Fusion Phenomenon gDO THERE EXIST NUCLEAR REACTIONS AT THE ENERGIES OF ATOMIC LEVELS?h (EXISTE-T-IL DES REACTIONS NUCLEAIRES A DES ENERGIES DE NIVEAU ATOMIQUE ?) in Paris. (By correspondence with Dr. Christophe de Reyff).

 Its program is copied below. The complete proceedings are not published for the time being, but you can get some articles through the PC of Mr Henri Lehn :
