We present a set of calorimetric data obtained with Fleischmann-Pons type cells, working in a novel electrostatic configuration aimed at achieving high deuterium loading. The analysis of such data, which includes an eight day run with a “blank” cell (Pt cathode), shows that: (a) the heat dissipation of the cells depends strongly on the physical processes occurring at the cathode; (b) the continuing calibration with periodic heat pulses yields accurate estimates of the excess enthalpies generated in the cells; (c) very high excess power densities are observed in the cells electrolyzing D2O with Pd cathodes.

    ABSTRACT: This document contains a tally of cold fusion papers from two sources: the list maintained by Dieter Britz at Aarhus U., and the EndNote database used to generate the indexes at Various tallies such as the number of peer-reviewed experimental papers are presented. Purpose This report presents some background and a breakdown of the items in two databases of cold fusion papers: the Britz collection, and the LENR-CANR database. The purpose is to give the reader a sense of the scale, variety, and sources of the material available about this subject. This is also intended to give some indication of how much has been published on cold fusion, where it was published, and approximately how many positive and negative papers have been published. This paper includes the following tallies: 1. Summary statistics for the LENR-CANR database 2. Positive, peer-reviewed excess heat papers culled from both databases. 3. Papers from Britz collection. 4. Famous failed neutron studies from 1989. These had a large influence on scientific opinion and the subsequent history of the field, but many cold fusion researchers believe they were flawed and should not be given weight today. Details from these four tallies are gathered in Appendix A. They include multipage lists of journal titles, authors and the individual titles of papers referenced in the four tallies.

    ABSTRACT: We describe room-temperature hydrogen and deuterium loading of palladium wires by means of pulsed electrolysis and the electromigration effect. The atomic ratio has been measured by means of the dependence of the resistivity upon the ratio. Values of the ratio up to 0.95 or even higher have been reached in short times. A correlation between an anomalous temperature rise and a resistivity “transition” of the overloaded palladium clearly appears.
