Cold fusion is a hypothesized type of nuclear reaction that would occur at, or fusion bottle, room temperature. This is compared with the "hot" fusion which takes place naturally within starsunder immense pressure and at temperatures of millions of degrees, and distinguished from muon-catalyzed fusion. There is currently no accepted theoretical model that would allow cold fusion to occur. In Martin Fleischmann fusion bottle one fusion bottle the world's leading electrochemists and Stanley Pons reported that their apparatus had produced anomalous heat "excess heat" of a magnitude they asserted would defy explanation except in terms of nuclear processes.
Many scientists tried to replicate the experiment with the few details available. Hopes faded due to the large number of negative replications, the withdrawal of many reported positive replications, the discovery of flaws and sources of experimental error in the original experiment, and finally the discovery that Fleischmann and Pons had not actually detected nuclear reaction byproducts.
A second DOE review inwhich looked at new fusion bottle, reached similar conclusions and did not result in DOE funding of cold fusion. A small community of fusion bottle continues to investigate cold fusion,   now often preferring the designation low-energy nuclear reactions LENR or condensed matter nuclear science Fusion bottle. Nuclear fusion is normally understood fusion bottle occur at temperatures in the tens of millions of degrees. Since the s, there has been speculation that nuclear fusion might be possible at much lower temperatures by catalytically fusing hydrogen absorbed in a metal catalyst.
Ina claim by Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann then one of the world's leading electrochemists that fusion bottle cold fusion had been observed caused a brief media sensation before the majority of scientists criticized their claim as incorrect after many found they could not replicate the excess heat.
Fusion bottle the initial announcement, cold fusion research has continued by a small community of researchers who believe that fusion bottle reactions happen and hope to gain wider recognition for their experimental evidence. The ability of palladium to absorb hydrogen was recognized as early as the nineteenth century by Thomas Graham.
However, the authors later retracted that report, saying that the helium they measured was due to background from the air. In Swedish scientist John Tandberg reported that he had fused hydrogen into helium in an electrolytic cell with palladium electrodes. The term "cold fusion" was used as early as in a New York Times article about Luis Alvarez 's work on muon-catalyzed fusion.
The most famous cold fusion fusion bottle were made by Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann in After a brief period of interest by the wider scientific community, their reports were called into question by nuclear physicists. Pons and Fleischmann never retracted their claims, but moved their research program to France after the controversy erupted.
Martin Fleischmann of the University of Southampton and Stanley Pons of the University of Utah hypothesized that the high compression ratio and mobility of deuterium that could be achieved within palladium metal using electrolysis might result in nuclear fusion. Current was applied continuously for many weeks, with the heavy water being renewed at intervals. Fusion bottle high temperature phases would last for two days or more fusion bottle would repeat several times in any given experiment once they had occurred.
The calculated power leaving the cell was significantly higher than the input power during these high temperature phases. Eventually the high temperature phases would no longer occur within a particular cell.
In Fleischmann and Pons applied to the United States Department of Energy for funding towards a larger series of experiments. Fleischmann and Pons and co-workers met with Jones and co-workers on occasion in Utah to share research and techniques.
During this time, Fleischmann and Pons described their experiments as generating considerable fusion bottle energy", in the sense that it could not be explained by chemical fusion bottle alone. Jones, however, was measuring neutron flux, which was not of commercial interest.
In mid-Marchboth research teams were ready to fusion bottle their findings, and Fleischmann and Jones had agreed to meet at an airport on 24 March to send their papers to Nature via FedEx. Fleischmann and Pons' announcement drew wide media attention. Its discovery 30 years earlier had also been unexpected, though it was quickly replicated and explained within the existing physics framework. The fusion bottle of a new purported clean source of energy came at a crucial time: PetersonFleischmann and Pons, backed by the solidity of their scientific credentials, repeatedly assured the journalists that cold fusion would solve environmental problems, fusion bottle would provide a limitless inexhaustible source of clean energy, using only seawater as fuel.
Although the experimental protocol had not been published, physicists in several countries attempted, and failed, to replicate the excess heat phenomenon.
The first paper fusion bottle to Nature reproducing excess heat, although it passed peer-review, was rejected because most similar experiments were negative and there were no theories that could explain a positive result; [notes 1]  this paper was later accepted for publication by the journal Fusion Technology.
Nathan Lewisprofessor of chemistry at the California Institute fusion bottle Technologyled one of the most ambitious validation fusion bottle, trying many variations on the experiment without fusion bottle,  while CERN physicist Douglas R.
Morrison said that "essentially all" attempts fusion bottle Western Europe had failed. Nevertheless, Fleischmann and Pons and fusion bottle number of other researchers who found positive results remained convinced of their findings. On 30 April cold fusion was declared dead by the New York Times. The Times called it a circus the same day, and the Boston Herald attacked cold fusion fusion bottle following day.
On 1 May the American Physical Society held a session on cold fusion in Baltimore, including many reports of experiments that failed to produce evidence of cold fusion. At the end of the session, eight of the nine leading speakers stated that they considered the initial Fleischmann and Pons claim dead, with the ninth, Johann Rafelskiabstaining.
Koonin of Caltech called the Utah report a result of " the incompetence and delusion of Pons and Fleischmann, " which was met with a standing ovation. Morrisona physicist representing CERNwas the first to call the episode an example of pathological science. On 4 May, due to all this new criticism, the meetings with various representatives from Fusion bottle were cancelled. In Fusion bottle and NovemberNature published papers fusion bottle of cold fusion claims.
The United States Department of Energy organized a special panel to review cold fusion theory and research. Nuclear fusion of the type postulated would be inconsistent with current understanding and, if verified, would require established conjecture, perhaps even theory itself, to be extended in an unexpected way.
Fusion bottle panel was against special funding for cold fusion research, but supported modest funding of "focused experiments within fusion bottle general funding system. In March Michael H. Salamon, a physicist from the University of Utahand nine co-authors reported negative results.
The lawyer later apologized; Fleischmann defended the threat as fusion bottle legitimate reaction to alleged bias displayed by cold-fusion critics.
On 30 June the National Cold Fusion Institute closed after it ran out of funds;  it found no excess heat, and its reports of tritium production were met with indifference. Mostly in the s, several books were published that were critical of cold fusion research methods and the conduct of cold fusion researchers.
A review by a cold fusion proponent had calculated "about scientists" were still conducting research. These small but committed groups of cold fusion researchers have continued to conduct experiments using Fleischmann and Pons electrolysis set-ups in spite of the rejection by the mainstream community. Cold fusion bottle research continues today in a few specific venues, but the wider scientific community has generally marginalized the research being done and researchers have had difficulty publishing in mainstream journals.
The researchers who continue acknowledge that the flaws in the original announcement are the main cause of the subject's marginalization, and they complain of a chronic lack of funding  and no possibilities of getting their work published in the highest impact journals. A pariah field, cast out by the scientific establishment. Between cold fusion and respectable science there is virtually no communication at all.
Cold fusion papers are almost never published fusion bottle refereed scientific journals, with the result that those works don't receive the normal critical scrutiny that science requires. On the other hand, because the Cold-Fusioners see themselves as a community under siege, there is little internal criticism.
Experiments and theories tend to be accepted at face value, for fear of providing even more fuel for external critics, if anyone outside the group was bothering to listen.
In these circumstances, crackpots flourish, making matters worse for those who believe fusion bottle there is serious science going on here. In Augustthe U. The report was released in The reviewers were "split approximately evenly" on whether the fusion bottle had produced energy in the form of heat, but "most reviewers, even those fusion bottle accepted the evidence for excess power production, 'stated that the effects are not repeatable, the magnitude of the effect has not increased in over a decade of work, and that many of the reported experiments were not well documented.
While significant progress has been made in the sophistication of calorimeters since the review of this subject inthe conclusions reached by the reviewers today are similar to those found in the review. The current reviewers identified a number of basic science research areas that could be helpful in resolving some of the controversies fusion bottle the field, two of which were: The reviewers believed that this field would benefit from the fusion bottle processes associated with proposal submission to agencies and paper submission to archival journals.
Cold fusion researchers placed a "rosier spin"  on the report, noting that they were finally being treated like normal scientists, and that the report had increased interest in the field and caused "a huge upswing in interest in funding cold fusion research.
The grant was intended to support research fusion bottle the interactions of hydrogen with palladium, nickel or platinum under extreme conditions.
Hubler, a nuclear physicist who worked for the Naval Research Laboratory for 40 years, was named director. He claims that the new experiment has already seen "neutron emissions at similar levels to the observation".
Since the Fleischmann and Pons announcement, the Italian National agency for new technologies, energy and sustainable economic development ENEA has fusion bottle Franco Scaramuzzi's research into whether excess heat can be measured from metals loaded with deuterium gas.
In —, the ENEA started a research program which claimed to have found excess power of up to percent, and inENEA hosted the 15th cold fusion conference. We can't find any reason to propose more money for the coming year or for the future. In the s India stopped its research in cold fusion at the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre because of the lack of consensus among mainstream scientists and the US denunciation of the fusion bottle. Electrolysis cells can be either open cell or closed cell.
In open cell systems, the electrolysis products, which are gaseous, are fusion bottle to leave the cell. In closed cell experiments, the products are captured, for example by catalytically recombining the products in a separate part of the experimental system.
These experiments generally strive for a steady state condition, with the electrolyte being replaced periodically. There are also "heat-after-death" experiments, where the evolution of heat is monitored after the electric current fusion bottle turned off.
The fusion bottle basic setup of a cold fusion bottle cell consists of two electrodes submerged in a solution containing palladium and heavy water. The electrodes are then connected to a power source to transmit electricity from one electrode to the other through the solution.
The Fleischmann and Pons early findings regarding helium, neutron radiation and tritium were never replicated satisfactorily, and its levels were too low for the claimed heat production and inconsistent with each other. An excess heat observation is based on an energy balance. Various sources of energy input and output are continuously measured.
Under normal conditions, the energy input can be matched to the energy output to within experimental error. In experiments such as those run by Fleischmann and Pons, an electrolysis cell operating steadily at one temperature transitions to operating at a higher temperature with no increase in applied current. Unable to produce excess heat or neutrons, and with positive experiments being plagued by fusion bottle and giving disparate results, most fusion bottle declared that fusion bottle production was not a real effect and ceased working on the experiments.
Known instances of nuclear reactions, aside from producing energy, also produce nucleons and particles on readily observable ballistic trajectories. In support of their claim that nuclear reactions took place in their electrolytic cells, Fleischmann and Pons reported a neutron flux of 4, neutrons per second, as well as detection of tritium.
The classical branching ratio fusion bottle previously known fusion reactions that produce tritium would predict, with 1 watt of power, the production of 10 12 neutrons per second, levels that would have been fatal to the researchers.
Several fusion bottle and heavy elements like calcium, titanium, chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt, copper and zinc have been reported as fusion bottle by several researchers, like Tadahiko Mizuno or George Miley. The report presented to the United States Department of Energy DOE in indicated that deuterium-loaded foils could be used to detect fusion reaction products and, although the reviewers found the evidence presented to them as inconclusive, they indicated that those experiments did not use state-of-the-art techniques.
In response to doubts about the lack of nuclear products, cold fusion researchers have tried to capture and measure nuclear products correlated with excess heat.
In the report presented to the DOE inthe reviewers' opinion was divided on the evidence for 4 He; with the fusion bottle negative reviews concluding that although the amounts fusion bottle were above background levels, they were very close to them and therefore could be caused by contamination from air. One of the main criticisms of cold fusion was that deuteron-deuteron fusion into helium was expected to result in the production of gamma rays —which were not observed and were not observed in subsequent cold fusion experiments.
