Analysis of compressional mode excitation in an air capacitor configuration for a controlled Karabut experiment
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Karabut has reported the observation of collimated x-rays near 1.5 keV from an experiment done in a high-current glow discharge, which is a result that we consider to be one of the most important in the field of condensed matter nuclear science. We have interpreted this experiment as demonstrating coherent energy transfer between a highly-excited acoustic vibrational mode near 50 MHz and the 1565 eV transition in 201Hg. This nuclear transition is special in that it is the lowest energy transition from the ground state in any stable nucleus.
