Article: “Materials Advances Result from Study of Cold Fusion”

Thanks to LION for pointing out this new article published in the November issue of the MRS Bulletin, available at the following link:

Philip Ball, writer for Nature, writes about the Google-sponsored research project to re-explore the field of cold fusion. This article focuses mainly on the materials science aspects of the research, particularly on the process of hydrogen loading of palladium which many cold fusion researchers consider a key for producing an environment in which fusion can occur.

Ball looks at potential benefits of this research in terms of material science, for example, how hydrogen loading could have applications in hydrogen storage technology, and even in the pharmaceutical industry for deuterating drugs.
