“E-capture”

In “ http://www.e-catworld.com/2016/11/15/high-current-densities-environmental-conditions-for-cold-fusion-gerhard-hunf/ “ was shown, the current flow at the contact point (conductor / superconductor) is almost completely changed from the conductor to the superconductor. For this, the velocity of the electrons must change in the ratio of the cross sections mm2 / nm2 (conductor / superconductor). The branching point (conductor / superconductor) thus acts as a particle accelerator for electrons. The electron becomes heavier.

The “e-capture reaction” can be formulated as follows
(p + + e) + E1 = n + v.

E1 can be calculated from the mass difference Δm = m (neutron) – m (p + + e). The mass difference is 1.39 x 10exp-30 kg. Substituting this into E mc2 gives E1 = 1.249x10exp-13J or 0.78MeV.

This work W = U I t. must be supplied by the system. In order to check whether a current density (J) of 10exp11 A / m2 is sufficient, we use for the superconducting layer
W = U I t = U x (J x F) x s / v => J = W x v / U x F x s

W = 1.249×10-exp-13J; v = 10exp2 m / sec; U = 12V (battery); F = 10exp-12 m2; s = 10exp-10 m. ! Attention: 1Volt is also 1J/C, 1Ampere is also 1C/sec!

From this follows current density (J) is about 10exp11 A / m2

This means current density for the “e-capture” is the same achieved in the superconducting layer.

Don’t we have to assume Cooper-pairs here instead of ‘classical’ conduction electrons? If so, which consequences would you see both with regard to the energy aspect and the supposed mechanism of electron capture?

• hunfgerh

Yes and no.
The quantum-mechanical calculation of the current density to the one performed
here will less differ. However, the current density is only a measure for the
number of charge carriers.

But the mechanism of “e-capture” can only be carried out if the cooper-pair
(spin 0) decouples after a certain coherent length 10exp-6m -10exp-10m into two
uncoupeld electrons with the (spin ½) in the same direction. “Superconducting
is a periodic decoupl/ coupel process.” For this reason, the same number of unpaired electrons are present in a superconductor in addition to the cooper pairs. Only by this can the s-electronbe pushed into the core by repulsion of similar charges.
