Emergence of a High Temperature Superconductivity in Hydrogen Cycled Pd Compounds as an Evidence of a Superstoihiometric H/D Sites
Transport and magnetic properties of hydrogen cycled PdHₓ and Pd/PdO:Hₓ (x ~ (4/6) × 10ˉ⁴) nano-composite consisting of a Pd matrix with hydrogen trapped inside dislocation cores have been studied. the results suggest emergence of a high-temperature superconductivity state of a condensed hydrogen phase confined inside deep dislocation cores in the Pd matrix. the possible role of hydrogen/deuterium filled dislocation nano-tubes is discussed. These dislocation cores could be considered as active centers of LENR triggering due to (i) short D-D separation distance (~Bohr radius); (ii) high-local D-loading in the Pd and the corresponding effective lattice compression; (iii) a large optic phonon energy resulting in a most effective lattice-nuclei energy transfer.
