Summary of Theory

Talbot Chubb's theory fits in the category of ion band states. Chubb proposes a metal-catalyzed nuclear fusion theory in which deuterons (pn nuclei) diffusing through a metal encounter 10-nm domains with gem-quality lattice order and adopt the local geometry of the metal electrons.
They form spin-zero deuteron pairs neutralized by spin-zero electron pairs, which have a resonant standing-wave configuration (no Coulomb barrier).

Wavelike deuteron pairs change into wavelike helium-4 nuclei with (pn,pn) nuclear geometry. The (pn,pn) helium-4 subsequently decays to (pp,nn) helium-4, which is nuclearly stable. Energy is transferred to bulk metal electrons by multiple electron scatterings (momentum transfers) and/or lattice vibration excitations (phonons).

Resolution to Huizenga's "Three Miracles of Cold Fusion"


John Huizenga wrote a scathing book denouncing cold fusion research in 1993. He was a professor of chemistry and physics at the University of Rochester, a Department of Energy-funded hot fusion research laboratory. He was also chairman of the 1989 Department of Energy cold fusion evaluation panel that decided cold fusion research was not an area of science worthy of government funding. He mocked cold fusion by alluding to its unexplained characteristics as "miracles." Huizenga's three miracles were:
  • Miracle #1: the mystery of how the Coulomb barrier is penetrated
  • Miracle #2: the lack of strong neutron emissions
  • Miracle #3: the lack of strong emission of gamma or x-rays
