Thank you for the reference (below). I see this as a possible explanation of the coherent optical (and x-ray?) emission and even the rf emissions that have been detected in active CF reactions. The intense EM fields (direct and as photons) associated with nuclear decay via the deep-orbit electrons (proposed as the operative mechanism for CF effects) act as an intense 'pump' source to produce microscopic (perhaps plasma-like) lasing regions: "... the statistical properties of the emission of a laser with non-resonant feedback are very close to those of the emission from an extremely bright ‘black body’ in a narrow range of the spectrum. The emission of such a laser has no spatial coherence and is not stable in phase." Nevertheless, linear defects within the lattice (a proposed source of CF) would provide a basis for spatial coherence.
The reference addresses, and has many sources on, types of lasing that we generally don't consider. Andrew M.
