Evidence of Superstoichiometric H/D LENR Active Sites and High-Temperature Superconductivity in a Hydrogen-Cycled Pd/PdO
Electron transport and magnetic properties have been studied in a 12.5 µm thick Pd foil with a thermally grown oxide and a low-residual concentration of hydrogen. This foil was deformed by cycling across the Pd hydride miscibility gap and the residual hydrogen was trapped at dislocation cores. Anomalies of both resistance and magnetic susceptibility have been observed below 70 K, indicating the appearance of excess conductivity and a diamagnetic response that we interpret in terms of filamentary superconductivity. These anomalies are attributed to a condensed hydrogen-rich phase at dislocation cores. the role of deuterium rich dislocation cores as LENR active sites is discussed.
