Theory of Bose-Einstein condensation mechanism for deuteron-induced nuclear reactions in micro/nano-scale metal grains and particles by Yeong E. Kim Department of Physics, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47906, USA
Abstract : Recently, there have been many reports of
experimental results which indicate occurrences of anom-
alous deuteron-induced nuclear reactions in metals at low
energies. A consistent conventional theoretical description
is presented for anomalous low-energy deuteron-induced
nuclear reactions in metal. The theory is based on the
Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC) state occupied by deuter-
ons trapped in a micro/nano-scale metal grain or particle.
The theory is capable of explaining most of the experimen-
tally observed results and also provides theoretical pre-
dictions, which can be tested experimentally. Scalabilities
of the observed effects are discussed based on theoretical
