Abstract

The cold transmutation observed on the surfaces of Sr- or Cs-doped Pd/(CaO+ Pd)Pd complexes is interpreted to be a result of virtual 8 4 X particle addition by the confinement of four interstitial solute deuterons jumping from four tetragonal sites to octahedral sites along [111] directions in a Pd/CaO lattice and electrostatic attraction due to the charge transfer in the chains of atoms; i.e., an alternating tetrahedral-octahedral site arrays 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: 88 38 Sr + 4 2 1 D +8 e* → 96 42 Mo 133 55 Cs + 4 2 1 D +8 e* → 141 59 Pr 56 137 Ba + 6 2 1 D +12e* → 62 149 Sm 56 138 Ba + 6 2 1D +12 e* → 62 150 Sm. The deuterons are a source of supply for reparation for mass balance in the transmutation. The roles of CaO are dissolution of Sr and Cs and the creation of a good route for deuteron rushing by aid of vacuum pumping.
