Summary of Theory
Scott Chubb initially proposed that cold fusion reactions could occur through an idea involving ion band states that, at the time, appeared to ignore the Coulomb barrier. The underlying concept made use of approximate, quasiparticle ideas, associated with conventional solidstate physics. Beginning in 1997, Chubb developed an important improvement that involves a generalization of the quasiparticle idea that includes timedependent features and key effects associated with finite size. In the process of formulating this improvement, he generalized the conventional theory associated with energy band theory and quasiparticles by incorporating all of the relevant timedependent, quantummechanical effects associated with the limit where energy band theory applies. In particular, in the limit associated with an ordered solid, many cancellations take place, and the idea that the solid, as a whole, can move rigidly provides an important avenue for justifying conventional energy band theory and forms of reaction that can explain "cold fusion.
