Muon fusion is a known process based on the high muon / electron mass ratio enabling a muon of a Deuterium atom to screen the positive charge of its Deuterium nucleus and allow two Deuterium nuclei to approach one another close enough for fusion D + D -> 4He + 23.8 MeV to take place. Julian Schwinger, who said “... in the very low energy cold fusion, one deals essentially with a single state, described by a single wave function, all parts of which are coherent ...”, encouraged Simons and Walling to propose that Deuterium nuclei and electrons in Palladium could get increased effective mass through Palladium structure quantum processes to screen Deuterium nuclei enough for fusion D + D -> 4He + 23.8 MeV to take place and for the “heavy electrons” to carry away most of the 23.8 MeV fusion energy into Palladium structure electron system and for the entire process to be “... enhanced ... by high electron density contributed by ... Pd centers” located near the point of fusion. Akito Takahashi proposed that the structure of Palladium would encourage a tetrahedral configuration of 4 Deuterium nuclei and 4 Deuterium electrons as a coherent quantum Tetrahedral Symmetric Condensate (TSC) that would collapse ( with the 4 electrons screening the 4 D nuclei ) and fuse D + D + D + D -> 8Be + 47.6 MeV -> 4He + 4He + 47.6 MeV. Palladium clusters of 147 atoms ( about 1.5 nanometers ) have a ground state icosahedral configuration that encourages TSC fusion and a metastable cuboctahedral configuration that allows reloading of ambient Deuterium into the Palladium cluster by a Jitterbug transformation with, for each TSC configuration, a central Palladium atom to enhance the process. If each 147-atom Palladium cluster is embedded into a Zeolite cage then the fusion energy can be carried from the Deuterium electrons to the Palladium electrons to the Zeolite electrons, thus heating the Zeolite, which heat can be released as needed by reacting with D2O to form steam. Version 2 (v2) corrects typo, adds reference, and adds recipe for Zeolite Pd-D fusion experiment.
