Great Job by Kitamura et all, Their conclusion that the D(H)/Pd ratio and absorption energy is an increasing function of fineness of the sample surface was airtight based on the calibrations and differential measurements they document. It confirms many of the earlier reports by other researchers and gives us a comparative table of related materials and granularity. It fits with the dimensions of Mills' skeletal catalysts and Arata's Pd nano material.
Fran [Vo]:Kitamura paper uploaded Jed Rothwell Sat, 19 Dec 2009 14:29:37 -0800 See: Kitamura, A., et al., Anomalous effects in charging of Pd powders with high density hydrogen isotopes. Phys. Lett. A, 2009. 273(35): p. 3109-3112. http://lenr-canr.org/acrobat/KitamuraAanomalouse.pdf Prof. Kitamura went to a lot of trouble to get permission from the publisher to allow a manuscript version of the paper at LENR-CANR.org. So let's give it up for the professor and everyone should read this paper. It's important. This plus Kidwell and Arata's own recent experiments make what I consider and iron-clad case that the Arata effect is real. This could well be the most important breakthrough since 1989 because it can be controlled and scaled up, so it may lead to practical devices. - Jed
