Jones - No, not humor. Lack of neutrons and gamma has been -a- defining difference between hot fusion and cold fusion. In hot fusion the energy is taken away by neutrons and gamma almost exclusively. In cold fusion, there are no neutrons and gamma commensurate with heat production (or dead graduate students). Instead, there are low rate side productions of neutrons and gammas in cold fusion systems, but that may be due to a small branching ratio or a small amount of 2-body hot fusion occurring.
The input energy going into many cold fusion experiments is certainly commensurate with that going into a Farnsworth fusor, but the Farnsworth reaction is widely regarded as being 2-ion hot fusion. I have that report, but have only scanned it so far. It could be that the neutron and gamma rates reported were small compared to the energy released by the reaction - do you know?
