Neutron emission from the d-d nuclear fusion reaction, D/d,n/3He, in and on titanium metals /titanium sponge and the mixture of titanium powder/ trapped deuterium at about 1 atm has been ascertained by using a high resolution liquid scintillation detector. The neutron emissions from 11 samples which were provided under wide varieties of conditions were measured by temperature change in the range of liquid nitrogen temperature to 350 °C. As a result, it was proved that the neutron emission observed can be divided into two types, such as cooling and heating, by the evolved conditions. Moreover, by estimating the neutron emission efficiencies of samples, it was suggested that the neutron emission reactions are closely related to the deuterium trapped in the surface of titanium metal.
