This communication presents the results obtained analysing the reaction of deuteron fusion, catalysed by the plasmons in crystalline lattices with cubic structure, on varying the temperature. The enhancement of the tunnelling effect, a consequence of increasing the temperature and the concentration of impurities, suggests the hypothesis that a sort of chain reaction favored by the microcracks formed in the structure as a result of lattice deformation, could promote the process. This result could be interpreted considering the trend of the potential which describes the effective interaction between deuterons within the metal: in effect it shows that the coupling of plasmons and deuterons, in the presence of impurities, can not only reduce the thickness but also lower the height of the Coulomb barrier K. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    A simple model based on the concept of resonant tunneling clusters of lattice defects is used to explain the low temperature anomalies of hcp He crystals (mass decoupling from a torsional oscillator, shear modulus anomaly, dissipation peaks, heat capacity peak). Mass decoupling is a result of an...

    High energy neutrons, more than 2.45 MeV from deuteron-deuteron fusion reaction, have been measured in backward direction of plasma focus devices in many laboratories. However the experimental evidence for high energy deuterons responsible for such neutrons has not been reported so far. In this...
