Sounds like a molecule to me, which is exactly what I would expect. However if you put two protons in close proximity to one another for long enough, especially when there are also a couple of electrons handy, then there is an improved chance that a deuteron will form, probably following the electron capture branch. Note that the binding energy of these molecules can be tens of keV, which implies a very high temperature to break them. Regards, Robin van Spaandonk http://rvanspaa.freehostia.com/project.html
