One of the systems mentioned in Hagelstein's 2015 paper
(http://www.currentscience.ac.in/Volumes/108/04/0601.pdf) is the
Vysotskii system where what appears to be a coherent collapse of
cavitaion bubbles causes a shock wave to travel through a metal plate
and generate a very sharp pulse of 1-5keV X-rays from the metal surface
on the other side. I have just come back from a conference where
Vysotskii presented this.
I felt that it was very clever and appeared to show some very
interesting coherent energy conversion phenomena, but there did not
appear to be any evidence of LENR

The neutron “hopping” modality is indeed one way that gain could happen.
In fact you are probably referring to Hagelstein’s 1993 paper where he
introduces this concept wrt palladium.
I do not think he was envisioning iron as the active metal at that time.
Perhaps he will be reminded of this possibility.
I like it but it also demands that the 2.4 MeV gamma is attenuated via
the down-conversion aspect – so there are two miracles involved.
… or do you get both miracles for the price of one when you have up
and down conversion together <g> ???
