 The man of science must work with method. Science is built up of facts, as a house is built of stones; but an accumulation of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house. Most important of all, the man of science must exhibit foresight.Henri Poincaré, Science and Hypothesis, p. 141. Translated by W.J.G., Dover Publications, Inc. 1952.

i. Characteristics of CF Materials where occur Nuclear Transmutation and Excess Energy Generation

Hideo Kozima


  Present status of researches of the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP) with a lot of curious experimental facts inexplicable by conventional knowledge of nuclear physics could be characterized by a phenomenology. There are three kinds of CF materials where occurs the CFP; (1) transition-metal hydrides/deuterides, (2) some hydrocarbons, and (3) some biological bodies. In this paper, we present an extensive phenomenological investigation of the CFP occurring in the three kinds of materials from the point of view that the phenomenon is induced by essentially the same common causes to three kinds of CF materials. The most interesting common factor is the periodic array of the host nuclei interlaced with another periodic array of protons or deuterons. Using the TNCF (trapped neutron catalyzed fusion) and ND (neutron drop) models, we investigate essential factors of the CFP common to the three kinds of CF materials thus giving keys to understand the nature of the curious and perplexing CFP.


iiInvestigation of the Cold Fusion Phenomenon in the Surface Region of Hydrogen Non-occlusive Metal Catalysts; W, Pt, and Au

*Cold Fusion Research Laboratory and **Hokkaido University


Experimental data sets of the cold fusion phenomenon (CFP) obtained in the contact catalysts W, Pt and Au are investigated from a point of view common to whole data of the CFP in various systems performed in almost twenty years after its discovery. These metals do not occlude hydrogen isotopes and give us precious information about mechanisms facilitating formation of a matter for the CFP (CF matter). The contact catalysts shed light on atomic processes necessary to form the CF matter and also on nuclear processes to realize the nuclear transmutation and other events accompanying excess energy production in the CFP. The former may have a close relation with the mechanism of catalysis. Experimental data sets on the nuclear transmutation in these metals have confirmed the stability effects in the generation of new nuclides discovered by us with some characteristic modification by the experimental system.



3. ICCF14 Washington D.C., USAで開催されました。

ICCF14 August 10 – 15, 2008 Washington D.C. のホテルHyatt Regency at Capitol Hill で開催されました。

Proceedingsに出す論文についての説明が916日に大会委員長のNagel Melich から送られてきましたので、下に引用します。ICCF10から3回はWorld Scientificから出版されていたのですが、未刊行のICCF13を含め、自国出版に切り替わったことになります。


“Dear Colleagues,

Finally, we have determined that the proceedings for ICCF-14 will be printed in black and white on 8.5 by 11 inch paper.  That printing will be done in the US, since most participants were from the host country and mailing charges from the US will be more reasonable.
   Given how long it has taken to reach the conclusions above, we are asking that all papers be provided to us by the end of October 2008.  However, if you finish your paper sooner, please send it to us right away. This will even out our workload and allow us to publish sooner after the deadline.
   Please provide all papers to Jed Rothwell at  He did a superb job with the Agenda and Abstract book and, fortunately, is willing to accept, edit and format the papers for the proceedings.
   We will handle the papers in the following steps, quite similar to those for publication is ordinary refereed journals.
1.  Jed will copy edit the papers, when they are received, to take care of spelling, typographical and obvious language problems, and then send them to the conference chairmen.
2.  The papers will be sent by the chairmen to Technical Editors, who will review the papers for content and presentation, and suggest changes to the authors.
3.  The papers will be returned by the chairmen to the authors to consider the suggested changes.
4.  The authors will return their papers to the chairmen, who may resolve any residual concerns. 
5.  Jed will then provide the final formatting in order to insure uniformity of appearance.
6.  The authors will be provided with proof copies to insure that mistakes have not crept into their papers.
   We hope to have these steps completed for each of the approximately 100 papers early next year.  Assembly of the final book, plus printing and mailing, will follow quickly.
   Unlike the book of abstracts, we will not print author photos or biographies in the proceedings.  The format for the papers will be similar to that for the abstracts:
   Page size: North American Letter Size (8.5 by 11 inches = 216 by 279 millimeters)
Margins: 1 inch (25 millimeters) on all around, left, right, top and bottom
Font: Times New Roman
Font Size: 14 point bolded for the title (centered)
12 point for authors and their institutions (centered)
12 point for the text and references (left and right justified)
Line Spacing: Single spaced in text and references.
Double spaced between paragraphs within the text.
Software: Microsoft WORD or LATEX.  If you use Microsoft Word, please use the built-in equation editor.
Length: Five pages for contributed papers, including all poster papers.  Authors of reviews and invited papers will be notified separately that their papers can be up to seven pages in length.  The page length restrictions were determined by the need to keep the proceedings to about 500 pages in total length.
   These procedures will avoid having to give the copyright for these papers to a publisher.  We plan to post the papers for the ICCF-14 proceedings on the website, and possibly other sites.  If any authors do not want their papers posted on the web, please be sure to make that clear to the conference chairmen.
   Thank you to all presenters for your work before and at the conference, your willingness to contribute to the proceedings, and for your consideration and adherence to the above guidance.  We expect that the ICCF-14 papers will be useful both to conference participants and to the growing number of people who are interested in our field, especially students.
   with best regards,
 Dave Nagel and Mike Melich”
