An experimental “cold fusion” device produced this pattern of “triple tracks” (shown at right) which scientists say is caused by high-energy nuclear particles resulting from a nuclear reaction. SALT LAKE CITY, March 23, 2009 — Researchers are reporting compelling new scientific evidence for the existence of low- energy nuclear reactions (LENR), the process once called “cold fusion” that may promise a new source of energy. One group of scientists, for instance, describes what it terms the first clear visual evidence that LENR devices can produce neutrons, subatomic particles that scientists view as tell-tale signs that nuclear reactions are occurring. Low-energy nuclear reactions could potentially provide 21 st Century society a limitless and environmentally-clean energy source for generating electricity, researchers say. The report, which injects new life into this controversial field, will be presented here today at the American Chemical Society’s 237 th National Meeting. It is among 30 papers on the topic that will be presented during a four-day symposium, “New Energy Technology,” March 22-25, in conjunction with the 20 th anniversary of the first description of cold fusion.
