First, I do not think Clean Planet's results are valid.

Second, Mizuno's own reactor had a lot of Pd in it, and I think that was
the active metal. Mizuno used Pd wire and also Pd was sputtered everywhere
by glow discharge. I expect it went onto the walls and the Ni screens.

I do not know know whether Clean Planet's reactor had Pd in it, but as I
said, I do not trust their calorimetry. They don't want to hear about my

As I said, I think there is probably a lot of Pd sputtered on to it. In his
latest experiment he got much better results by deliberately putting a
small amount of Pd on the Ni, by two methods. See p. 24:
