    This work pursues investigations into the discharge with a cathode plasma in a cavity one wall of which is an insulating plate with a hole D in diameter (the cavity is 0.5 or 1.5 mm wide). This discharge is thoroughly analyzed in comparison with the high-voltage hollow-cathode discharge. Owing...

    Complete fusion reactions (xn-channels) using actinide targets are observed for values of the effective fissilities x eff ∼ 0.80 in the sub-pb range of production cross sections. The elements produced at this limit are Z = 108–112. Beyond complete fusion, heavier elements might still...

    This article reports about an astonishingly simple demonstration, which appears to show that nuclear fusion can take place in an ordinary crystal soaked in deuterium gas--in a device no bigger than a coffee cup. While the technique is unlikely to lead to a practical power generator, a similar...
