Currently, humanity has reached a stage of development at which the struggle for energy resources is particularly important, because all the known sources of energy in the near future will not be able to provide our needs. Chemical energy, in addition, is limited on account of the so-called greenhouse effect. Nuclear energy is based on the use of fissile materials, and is not a solution, because the stock of these materials is limited. The initial optimistic expectation of the transition to the process of controlled nuclear fusion has not yet materialized. Technical difficulties in obtaining sustainable superhot plasma and the damaging effects of the enormous neutron flux arising as a result of fusion reactions back down the solution to this problem on a more distant and uncertain future.
Recently there was the belief that the problem of controlled nuclear fusion could be solved in a completely different way. It has been shown experimentally that the cross-barrier synthetic processes depend greatly on the physical state of the matter that reactive atoms are placed in. Distance convergence of two deuterium nuclei through the mechanism of the Rydberg crystal cell in metals occurs by an order of magnitude smaller than the size of a free atom of deuterium. Coulomb barrier permeability in this DD fusion process increases greatly (by the 50–60 orders of magnitude) as compared with a permeability barrier to free molecules of deuterium. In this recent work, we discuss the possibility of detecting the “cold” DD fusion process experimentally by detecting low-energy electrons resulting from the fusion reaction of two deuterons in palladium crystals with very small (thermal) excitation energies of the intermediate compound nucleus 4He*. This process is made possible by the exchange of the excited compound nucleus with electrons of the crystal lattice that results from virtual photons.
It happens historically that the process of DD cold fusion was studied in more detail than other, similar processes. In this regard, we have restricted ourselves to this particular process. Presented below is a summary report of the situation that has now developed, in a cold DD fusion.
Accelerator experiments have shown that the value of screening potential for the impurity atoms in metallic crystals reaches up to 300 eV or even more. This means that, during DD reaction occurring in the medium of the metal crystal, impurity atoms are excited, and deuterium has not circular but elliptical electron orbits, which are oriented relative to each other a certain crystallographic manner. In this case, the nuclei of these atoms can approach each other by a distance substantially less than the size of the unexcited atom, yet still without Coulomb repulsion. Such processes are known in the art and are the cause of chemical catalysis. The processes were first quantitatively described by Johannes Rydberg in 1888.
1. The existence of the phenomenon of cold fusion is now conclusively proved by experiments, including experiments on low-energy accelerators.
2. The observed absence of nuclear products for cold fusion can be explained by the decay of a compound nucleus 4He* slowing through nuclear channels as its excitation decreases in energy. The release of energy in this connection is mediated by virtual photons.
3. Prejudice of many nuclear experts to the phenomenon of cold fusion is due to the unusual nature of the nuclear process, in which cold fusion forms an intermediate compound nucleus 4He* in a metastable state.
4. The accumulated empirical rules of nuclear physics seem indisputable to the nuclear community, while the range of their application is merely limited.

Ruby, could you or others give a report on the importance and significance of this paper please.
I cannot george! Tsyganov explains his idea about how cold fusion works which involves a lowering of the Coulomb barrier to allow nuclei to fuse inside the lattice. Some background on his work is here:
Is he right? Some say yes, some say no. I can’t say.
There are a number of theories circulating, and it is for the scientists to decide which one ultimately explains the phenomenon.
You can ask your question of him at firstname.lastname@example.org though.
Thanks for your query!
Lowering or overcoming the Coulomb barrier is the key to succesful nuclear fusion of deuterons.
In Belgian patent BE1002780 a theory about fusion of nuclear orbitals in the presence of a surplus of electrons is explained, analogously to electrostatic wetting .See on the e-Cat Site the article: “Belgian LANR Patents” and also “LANR by Coulomb Explosion”. In the article “Cold Fusion Catalyst” Ni/H atom transmutation with potassium as catalyst producing negative hydrogen ions (H-) is explained to produce copper (Cu isotopes).
Rubi i love you!Will you marry me?
My hazy grasp of the piece is that in cerain crystaline conditions the orbits of electrons can become highly eliptical allowing the nuclei to fuse.
This elliptical state is common in catalysis.
Not understanding the mechanisim of catalysis, I consulted Wikipaedia and they too were vague. Sort of “And then a Miracle occurs”
Hmmm Now where have we heard that old joke? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
A sudden impure thought intrudes. If Rydberg gave a quantitative description of catalyctic reactions in 1888 why the obtuseness Wikipaedia? Is something being hidden?
I am reading Rupert Sheldrakes “Morphic Resonance” at the moment and he argues that we have got everything wrong at a fundamental level. Something to do with the arrow of time being reversed for the flow of information.
For instance it is impossible to grow certain crystaline drugs eg Ampicillin and the anti-aids drug Ritonivir after the chenicals “learned” how to grow in a different way. How inconvenient is that?
Sheldrake,R “Science set Free.” pp 102, 103.
Now a Real scientist would set his Ego to one side and accept the empirical evidence.
If we have to scrap the entire edifice of scientific progress, then so be it.
Your poor battered ego accounts for nothing.
You have just lost half your IQ. This is no time for life changing decisions.
Van Den Bogaert, Johannes. That is indeed exciting.
Is this the link that you were refering to?
Woah stop coming inbetween us!Shes all mine!
The blogsite I was referring to is: e-Cat Site. Said site does no longer exist since it has merged with “Cold Fusion Now” but is still available as archive site , so you can find its articles still on Google refering to the original site. Good luck! My Belgian patents can b,,e consulted in English through said site. Other BE-patents of mine relating to nuclear fusion can be found through ESPACENET (European patent data site), but are only in Dutch with Abstact in English.
