Abstract

Hydrogen isotope absorption by nickel-based binary nanocomposite samples has been examined in collaborative work in the new NEDO MHE project. The samples tested so far include Pd0.044Ni0.31Zr0.65 ("PNZ3" and re-calcined "PNZ3r") and Cu0.044Ni0.31Zr0.65 ("CNZ5"). Material characterization by XRD and STEM/EDS has revealed the existence of crystalline phases of NiZr 2 , ZrO 2 , etc., and nano-meter size structures of binary Pd/Ni or Cu/Ni composites in ZrO 2 supporter. All samples at elevated temperatures (200-300°C) showed anomalous heat evolution with excess power of 5-10 W for periods of several days, which corresponded to excess energy of 5 keV/atom-D(H) or 0.5 GJ/mol-D(H). This anomalous heat generation phenomenon could be the basis for practical, carbon-free energy devices that do not produce hard radiations.
