Ultra dense hydrogen (UDH) may not be a primary source for muon production. The Surface Plasmon Polariton may be the primary source of proton annihilation. The UDH by be a helpful host that provides a secondary support structure for the viability and maintenance of the SPPs. The SPP can use other ways and means to produce muons such as micro and nanoparticles, excited rough metal surfaces, collapsing cavitation bubbles, dirty plasma, photonic crystals, and thin films.
Let me better explain the possible relationship between these SPPs and UDH. To start out, Alan Smith is going to be demonstrating a live glow discharge experiment at the New Energy World Symposium. That's Mats Lewan's event happening next June 18-19th in Stockholm Sweden. The experiment will pass a glow charge through a tube containing low pressure gas, almost like a neon tube but without a phosphor. Probably running at something like 5 or 10 thousands volts. In the middle there will be a piece of metal foil. When the glow discharge begins then two things should happen. One of them: the metal foil should glow very very brightly, and sparkle in fact. You get sparkles on the surface. The other thing is, it produces what might be described as "anomalous radiation", what's, I think it was Edward Teller who coined the term, "Meshugganons". One of the characteristics of this radiation is that it does not do much to a Geiger counter. The Geiger… almost as if it weren't… was neutron radiation. The Geiger is very sluggish, but as you begin to pile shielding between the Geiger counter and the source - the glowing foil - so the radiation count goes up, and up and up. You can saturate a Geiger counter and set all the alarms off, but it does not appear to be harmful. It's sure sounds like muons are coming from the foil. This glow discharge experiment shows how a metal surface can form SPPs and how those SPPs can catalyze muons. But when the power going through the tube is cut, the muons stop. This shows that the SPP are not self sustaining in themselves. Muons don't interact with light elements well. For example, the interaction cross section for lead is 1,000,000 times greater than that for hydrogen. So piling heavy element shielding around the glowing foil produces muon catalyzed fusion and fission because of the high interaction cross section of muons with the heavy element shielding. Next, here is another example of where the SPP shows itself as a primary source of LENR activity. http://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/0957-4484/26/23/234002 SPECIAL Experimental observation of anomalous thermal radiation from a three-dimensional metallic photonic crystal Abstract We report some striking results on thermal radiation properties of a resonantly coupled cavity photonic crystal (PhC) at elevated temperatures (T = 400–900 K). We experimentally found that at resonant wavelengths, λ = 1.1, 1.64, 2.85 μm, the PhC emission is spectrally selective, quasi-coherent, directional, and shows significant deviation from Planck's blackbody law at equilibrium. The presence of non-equilibrium effects, driven by strong thermal excitation and cavity resonance, may be the major cause for our experimental observation. Sooner or later, science would stumble over some sort of LENR reaction. Thermal radiation coming off this photonic crystal (PhC) is up to 50 times stronger than blackbody radiation at certain frequencies. That radiation is coherent, directional, and focused. This finding has the researchers puzzled. I speculated that SPPs formed inside the coupled cavities in this crystal form a polariton Bose condensate that emits hawking radiation at specific thermal frequencies. There also may be some overunity here: more energy out than in... Now finally, when it comes to UDH, the SPP may ride on the outside electron spin wave that covers the outside of UDH. The SPP may use the UDH as a host, the way a rider uses a horse. The UDH is superconductive, almost lossless, self sustaining and meta-stable. It produces its own power and can store it. The UDH is the ideal host for the SPP. The SPP may be a beneficial parasite that can feed energy into the UDH, and the SPP keeps the UDH going.
