The Science of the Cold Fusion Phenomenon

By Hideo Kozima

Cold Fusion Research Laboratory (Shizuoka, Japan) and

Low Energy Nuclear Laboratory (PSU)



In 1989, the discovery of the now infamous gcold fusion processh was announced at a press conference on the same day that a scientific paper about the discovery was accepted for publication in a scientific journal. This discovery was greeted with great interest across the globe due to its potential application as a greener, more environmentally friendly energy source, and because such a phenomenon is impossible according to accepted theory. At the time, the physics and chemistry of the cold fusion phenomenon were too complicated to be understood based on current thinking then.

I have engaged in this field for more than 16 years during which a traditional approach was used to explain the cold fusion phenomenon, using models, and quantum dynamics in tandem. The results show elements of the new science of the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP), where neutrons in solids seem to be a key element in an interdisciplinary region of traditional solid-state physics, nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry.

It is also emphasized that a system in which the CFP occurs should be considered as a complex system where self-organization and chaos appear if the system is put into an unstable state. This is a necessary condition for inducing the CFP. In reality, there are many phases of the CFP suggesting that self-organization and/or chaos do occur.

In this seminar, those features of the CFP will be explained using experimental data and possible explanations based on the traditional science of solids and nuclei.



 2. The Journal of New Energy No. 7-2 (2007) will be published soon.

   Hal Fox, the editor of the Journal of New Energy, announced recently that a new issue of J. New Energy No. 7-2 (2007) will appear in a couple of months.
