This symposium covers a wide range of New Energy Technology with respect to clean environmental technologies with the capacity to reduce the dependency on environmentally unfriendly chemical fuels. This symposium includes ideas of how to improve the efficiency of energy sources as alternatives to fossil fuels and will mainly focus on the subject of cold fusion. The aim is to collect experimental evidences for cold fusion with the attempt to present reasonable explanations summarizing the facts toward a conclusive theoretical and practical working model.
It is obvious that cold fusion is not similar to thermonuclear hot fusion processes. An appreciable number of available documents report on different methods by which nuclear reactions are produced and controlled at low temperature. Those methods range from the use of gun-powder technique to the attempt to electrochemically induce nuclear fusion and fission with large excess heat in a deuterium containing metal lattice.
The emphasis is directed towards the fabrication of cold fusion devices with unique commercial potentials demonstrating the power of low-temperature nuclear reactions as the alternative to any fossil fuels. The idea of cold nuclear fusion has led to endless discussions about the kinetic impossibility of intense nuclear reactions with high coulomb barrier potentials. During the memorable Fleischmann-Pons experiments in 1989, which involved electrochemical cells using heavy water and palladium as the electrode, tremendous excess heat was discovered challenging all current atomic models.
Subsequent attention has been focused on the development of new ideas ranging from nucleon-cluster to the electron charge-cluster model. Reproducibility of cold fusion reactions has been very poor, and no group has fully resolved the problems associated with the special preparation of the metal electrode, the loading of deuterium and the turning on of excess heat.
