The following is taken from the link noted above:
Given the low efficiency of historical proton-lithium fusion methods, the
inventors pioneered an alternative approach that utilized predictions based on
a gravity theory developed by UGC. The primary prediction states that if a
proton is given just the right amount of energy, a very strong gravity force
will occur between the proton and lithium nuclei constituents that forces the
proton through the lithium Coulomb barrier resulting in high efficiency fusion.
After the proton penetrates through the Coulomb barrier it combines with the
lithium nucleus to create an unstable beryllium nucleus. The unstable beryllium
immediately decays into two high-energy helium ions.
The amount of energy imparted to the protons as predicted by the inventor's
gravity theory to create the proton-lithium fusion reaction is surprisingly
low. The theory predicts that fusion efficiency will be significantly increased
when a proton that has overcome the Coulomb barrier has energy close to 223 eV.
The experimental results described later in this application verify that by
imparting kinetic energy to protons near the predicted energy range results in
high rates of fusion that produces helium ions.
The inventors have tested two techniques for imparting kinetic energy to
protons. In one technique, a proton beam of specific energy was created that
travels through the reaction chamber and fuses with atomized lithium in the
chamber atmosphere. The second technique involved the creation of
proton-lithium plasma in a reaction chamber with a positive bias voltage that
accelerated the protons and results in fusion with atomized lithium in the
chamber atmosphere. A number of other techniques are described in this
application that remain to be tested.
The experimental results show that large numbers of high-energy particles are
produced and helium gas is created in the reaction chamber. During the
experiments, the input power needed to run the experiment is less than 1 kW.
The highest power output achieved has exceeded 16 kW. If the power consumption
of the vacuum pumps is not included, the power ratio Q reached values up to
3000. The fusion reaction has been sustained for 72 hours with every indication
the reaction could be run longer.
A related patent application for Li-H fusion was just recently identified on
the E-Cat World Blog.
This patent document suggests that potential energy of gravitational fields
should not be neglected within coherent systems.

The potential connection to Rossi’s reported LENR lithium isotopic changes and
other Li-D systems is obvious IMHO.
