The science of low energy nuclear reaction: a comprehensive compilation of evidence and explanations about cold fusion

Some of the most very important discoveries of this century chilly fusion was once summarily rejected via technological know-how and the media earlier than enough proof were accrued to make a rational judgment attainable. sufficient proof is now to be had to teach that this rejection used to be mistaken and that the invention of a brand new resource of unpolluted strength might help clear up a few critical difficulties at present dealing with mankind.

Strangeness and Charge Symmetry Violation in Nucleon Structure

This thesis discusses key issues: strangeness and cost symmetry violation (CSV) within the nucleon. It additionally offers a pedagogical creation to chiral powerful box conception adapted to the high-precision period of lattice quantum chromodynamics (QCD). as the nucleon has 0 internet strangeness, unusual observables supply large perception into the character of the vacuum; they could basically come up via quantum fluctuations within which strange–antistrange quark pairs are generated.

The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shifts: High-Precision Measurements of Bound-Electron g-Factors of Highly Charged Ions

This thesis provides the 1st isotope-shift size of bound-electron g-factors of hugely charged ions and determines the main targeted worth of the electron mass in atomic mass devices, which exceeds the worth within the literature by means of an element of thirteen. because the lightest primary giant particle, the electron is one in every of nature’s few imperative construction blocks.

5, the determination of the Larmor frequency will be discussed. 1 Trapping Charged Particles Already 23 years before Maxwell formulated the classical field theory of electromagnetism Samuel Earnshaw proved in 1842 that there is no single electrostatic or magnetostatic field configuration that can maintain a charged particle in a stable stationary equilibrium (Earnshaw’s Theorem) [1]. At present, mostly two different concepts are applied for the trapping of electrically charged particles in small volumes, a few cubic centimeters or smaller1 : (1) In 1953 Wolfgang Paul and Helmut Steinwedel developed the concept of trapping 1 For completion, we also mention the trapping of electrically charged particles in storage rings, which require usually circumferences of at least a few meters up to 27 km.

In the case of 12 C5+ and 40 Ca17+ the 2nd order Zeeman effect shifts all the Zeeman sublevels in equal measure up, so that the Zeeman splitting is not influenced and the 3rd order Zeeman effect slightly diminishes the Zeeman splitting. 5 Status of the Bound-Electron g-Factor Measurements In parallel to the great improvements of the theoretical predictions of the boundelectron g-factor in the last 15 years, a tremendous progress has been made on the experimental determination of the bound-electron g-factor.
