"Cold nuclear fusion apparatus"

The title apparatus is equipped with a means around an absorbent (such as Pd or ceramic) which absorbed a material (such as D) which starts the nuclear fusion to prevent the absorbed material from escaping from the absorbent. The means is a magnetic coil. The means may comprise an absorbent (which is a cathode), an electrical conductive layer (which is used as an anode) is formed around the absorbent via an electrical insulator, and voltage is applied. The efficiency of the nuclear fusion is improved.

The apparatus is composed of putting D-absorbing Pd in a D bath and highly heat conductive Cu is connected to it.

"System for Electrolysis"

James A. Patterson
27 Feb. 1996, 8 Jun. 1995; 52 claims.

A system for electrolysis and heating of a liquid electrolyte comprising: an electrolytic cell including a non-conductive housing and an inlet and an outlet; a first conductive foraminous grid positioned within said housing adjacent to said inlet; a second conductive foraminous grid positioned within said housing spaced from said first conductive grid and adjacent to said outlet; a plurality of conductive microspheres of substantially uniform size and density in electrical communication with said first conductive grid and electrically isolated from said second grid; said plurality of microspheres each including: a conductive metal flash coating of uniform thickness formed by chemical combination with a cation exchange surface of a spherical cross-linked polymer microbead from a metal cation which will chemically reduce with hydrazine; a nickel plating of uniform thickness formed atop said flash coating; a metallic hydride forming plating of uniform thickness formed atop said nickel plating, said metallic hydride plating being readily combinable with hydrogen or an isotope of hydrogen; a metallic support plating of uniform forming plating, said support plating having a relatively high hydrogen diffusion rate and a relatively low hydride formation ratio; means for pumping said liquid electrolyte into said electrolytic cell through said inlet, said electrolyte having a conductive salt in solution with water, said electrolyte exiting from said electrolytic cell through said outlet; said pumping means maintaining said electrolytic cell substantially filled with said electrolyte; an electric power source having terminals operably connected to said first and second grids.

"Porous metal cathode for cold fusion chain reaction, its manufacture, and electrolyte for reaction"

Reiko Notoya
14 July 1995, 29 Oct. 1993. 6 pages.

The cathode consists of a porous metal (voids 0.5-80 volume %) selected from a transition metal, Al, Sn, and stainless steel. The cathode is manufactured by shaping a metal powder with grain size 10nm -100Ám at room temperature or high temperature and high pressure, or shaping and heating. The electrolyte comprises a hydroxide, carbonate, sulfate, phosphate, nitrate, halide, perchlorate, and/or B compound of an alkali metal, alkaline earth metal, Group IIIB elements or transition metals.
