SNEAKING PAST THE COULOMB BARRIER IN  METALS – A.K.A. DEUTERON STRIPPING

Dr. Tom Passell

The Deuteron Stripping Hypothesis explains many details of the evidence of the past 26 years on the Fleischmann-Pons Excess Heat Effect first announced on March 23, 1989. Many researchers still assume the nuclear reaction source of the heat is a highly modified reaction between two deuterons. This talk will give the main reasons favoring the hypothesis that exothermic deuteron stripping reactions with the deuterium-absorbing metals nuclei is the source of the heat.

Dr. Tom Passell is a graduate of UC Berkeley Chemistry Department in 1954. In the 60 years since then, he has had a fascinating career in nuclear technology in applications including radioactive tracers, nuclear fission power, neutron activation analysis, and controlled thermonuclear fusion.
