… A di-deuterino molecule could contribute 1 D to the reaction, with the other 
absorbing the reaction energy as kinetic energy. Deuterons are about 4000 more 
massive than electrons, so one might expect very little of no bremsstrahlung. 
Most of the kinetic energy would be lost to ionization. Granted some of the 
removed electrons would be inner shell, but this only results in at most a 21 
keV x-ray.

BTW2 Are we sure that the original experiment that produced the Ag was run with 

Hi Robin,

I am pretty sure it was D2 … but as you say, the precursor to any nuclear 
reaction of this type could be a first stage densification reaction - whether 
it be Millsean or Holmlidean or otherwise… such as the binuclear atom being 
promoted by Accomazzi. A binuclear atom with two close electrons seems like it 
would be an improvement over the Mills di-deuterino in that the 2nd or 
non-reacting half of the pair gets to be closer in to the Pd nucleus and 
presumably could carry away more of the excess energy…

If cold fusion is a two step process, that detail would help explain the 
problem of reproducibility and heat-after-death and a few other things. The 
remarkable thing about Biberian’s finding is that it may represent the most 
solid evidence to be presented in 29 years for an identifiable nuclear pathway, 
but nobody really wants to deal with that… since the expectation of helium is 
so entrenched.
