Concerning the detection of neutrons and γ-rays from cells containing palladium cathodes polarized in heavy water
It is shown that neutrons generated in «cold fusion» cells can be detected following thermalization by means of high-resolution spectroscopy of the γ-rays generated by the (n, γ) reaction in light water. It is further shown that to achieve this characterization it is essential to use data analysis procedures which do not discriminate against the steady-state or quasi-steady-state generation of neutrons in the cell.
