The cold transmutation observed on the surfaces of Sr- or Cs-doped Pd/(CaP + Pd)Pd complexes is interpreted to be a result of virtual fX particle addition by the confinement of four interstitial solute deuterons jumping from four tetragonal sites to octahedral sites along [111] directions in a Pd/CaP lattice and electrostatic attraction due to the charge transfer in the chains of atoms; i.e., an alternating tetrahedral-octahedral site array with the aid of the electron-phonon charge-density wave coupling and electropionic attraction effects due to the capture of excited electrons from Pd and Ca by vacuum pumping: 3888Sr + 412[D + 8e* → 4296Mo and 55133Cs + 4 12D + 8e* → 59141Pr. The deuterons are a source of supply for reparation for mass balance in the transmutation. The roles of CaP are dissolution of Sr and Cs and the creation of a good route for deuteron rushing.
