The term "excess heat" is often used by CMNS researchers. But I know
that for most of them it is nothing more than a convenient synonym for
the "unexplained thermal energy."
CMNS (condensed matter nuclear science), by the way, is the new name of
a broad field. The main subfields are: CF (cold fusion, rare D+D
nuclear fusion events), CT (cold transmutations, rare nuclear events of
other kind) and EE (excess energy, whose origin remains to be
Many papers can be downloaded in the pdf format. First click on the
"Library" link, then scroll down to a paper you want. The shortcut is
to click on the letter, such as I (while looking for Iwamura), and then
on the paper you want. I strongly recommend CT papers written by
Iwamura et al.. Instead of going to the library you might like to
click on the "tutorial;" it was written By E. Storms, a retired
scientist from Los Alamos National Laboratory. Some papers in the
library are good and some are not good. Some authors are recognized
scientists and some are not.
4) What do you think about contents of recent units at my website? I
would be happy to share your comments with ~200 CMNS researchers
(subscribers to a restricted Internet list). The CMNS field continues
to be discriminated by our establishment (editors of mainstream
journals, DOE, NSF, etc.). What should be done to end the unjustified
discrimination? Why should today researchers pay for errors made 17.5
years ago? Why are they deprived benefits of the peer review process?
Let the perfect not be the enemy of the good.
