Results confirmed:2001: "Enhancement of the electron screening effect for d+ d fusion reactions in metallic environments", Europhysics Letters, 54:449 "...the observed enhancement of the electron screening in metal targets can, in tendency, explain the small neutron production rates observed in the cold-fusion experiment of Jones [reference 1989 Nature paper]." Also, K. Czerski, et al., Eur. Phys. J. A27:S01,83 (2006) " As shown in [Europhys. Lett. 68:363 (2004)], the screening energy of order 300 eV determined in accelerator experiments can explain the neutron production rate observed by Jones et al. [Nature 338:737, 1989] at room temperature."· S.E. Jones, A.N. Anderson, J.N. Bradbury, A.J. Caffrey, J.S. Cohen, P.A.M. Gram, M. Leon, R.L. Maltrud, M.A. Paciotti, C.D. Van Siclen, and K.D.

• Research discussed at the American Physical Society Four Corners meeting, 6-7 Oct 2006 • D3.00006 Construction of a Low-energy Single-wire Z-pinch Apparatus for Metal-catalyzed Fusion Studies http://meetings.aps.org/Meeting/4CF06/Event/55778 • B4.00001 Laboratory Nuclear Astrophysics or The universe as seen from underground. • B4.00002 Low energy accelerator for studying laboratory nuclear astrophysics.
• Solar Funnel Cooker invented by Dr. Jones (1990's), including plans to build your own, discussed here: http://solarcooking.org/plans/funnel.htm . This paper explains how the same funnel can be used to make ice at night (with air temp about 50 F or less). Start with cardboard and foil cut to about 2’ X 4’ (0.6m X 1.2 m)… OR start with Aluminized windshield reflector and cut so length is just twice the width (photo below, putting oven-safe plastic bag over painted-black canning jar on circular rack).
• Dr. Jones has given several hundreds of the aluminized-mylar Solar Funnel Cookers to families in developing countries in Haiti, Bolivia, Kenya, Turkey and Ecuador, with the most recent solar-cookers given to folks in Mali (2006, see photo below) and Mozambique (2007). More will go to help refugees who have fled from Iraq and/or Kenya. Updates: http://solarcooking.org/saveheat.htm and especially http://solarcooking.org/research/McGuire-Jones.mht . The latter paper compares the solar cooker made with windshield-reflector (OK) with the cardboard-and-aluminum-foil cooker (better), and it discusses a simple box cooker for low-sun days using just FOUR charcoal briquettes (see photos and data-graph below)...
