Recently Fischmann and Pons’ have reported experimental observation of an ‘excess’ heat production accompanied by emissions of gamma rays and neutrons when isotopic hydrogen (D,) was infused electrolytically into a palladium cathode to near saturation level ( ~ 1 DJPd). Independently, Jones and coworkers’, using a somewhat similar electrolytic cell and Ti as well as Pd as cathode, have reported details of observation of neutron emission peaking at -2.4 MeV and significantly above the broad spectrum background neutron count. Both groups have claimed this as evidence for a cold fusion occurring in the deuterated cathodes.
