Is lenr just a more efficient muon catalyzed fusion process ?
muon-catalysed fusion by microwave ionization of a Rydberg atom.
We discuss the alpha-muon sticking coefficient in the muon-catalysed d-t fusion in the framework of
the Constrained Molecular Dynamics model. Especially the influence of muonic chaotic dynamics on the
sticking coefficient is brought into focus. The chaotic motion of the muon affects not only the fusion cross
section but also the µ -α sticking coefficient. Chaotic systems lead to lar ger enhancements with respect
to regular systems because of the reduction of the tunneling region. Moreover they give smaller sticking
probabilities than those of regular events. By utilizing a characteristic of the chaotic dynamics one can
avoid losing the muon in the µ CF cycle. We propose that the application of the so-called “microwave
ionization of a Rydberg atom” to the present case could lead to the enhancement of the reactivation
process by using X-rays.
