Jones – Thanks for that alert to the paper on binuclear H. I will review, however I will be surprised if they address magnetic dipole coupling as in a Cooper pair of H nuclei which act as a Bose particle with a distributed charge Coulomb electric field. I would not conclude a binding of 30eV is calculated properly as one would calculate the binding of a simple diatomic molecule.
Separately, I spent some time trying to understand how the first (Mizuno) paper addresses the temperature of the exit plenum walls as influenced by variations in the ambient temperature of the laboratory. In addition I did not understand the thermal coupling between the control reactor and the reactor with the suspected LENR reaction within their common enclosure. I would have thought there would be no coupling between the control and the “real” test reactors. The second paper by Schwartz has so many new unfamiliar terms for me that I found hard to follow.

Condensed Matter Nuclear Science Vol. 25 uploaded From: Jed Rothwell<mailto:jedrothw...@gmail.com> See: http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/BiberianJPjcondensedx.pdf There is an interesting paper by Accomazzi on binuclear hydrogen (hydrogen-like helium) which Bob Cook and anyone looking for a proton-paring scenario can appreciate. Together with Mills and Holmlid, this is appealing an one can cherry-pick. Quote: “Binuclear atoms are metastable configurations in which two nuclei are held together by the electronic energy of the orbiting electrons in an atomic-like configuration. The hydrogen– hydrogen helium-like Binuclear atom (H+H+)2e- is explicitly predicted to exist, although the activation energy required for its formation ( 30 eV) is extremely high for ordinary chemistry, so that it can only be formed under very special conditions such as the ones occurring inside a dense collisional cascade. The (H+H+)2e-Binuclear atom is predicted to be metastable with a remarkably high activation energy (of several electron volts) for its dissociation. In the (H+H+)2e-Binuclear atom, the electronic energy is not a constant of motion and is coupled with the nuclear kinetic energy… The first graph is telling and has been replicated apparently
