Neutrino-Driven Nuclear Reactions of Cold Fusion and Transmutation
Belarus State University
The term “neutrino - driven nuclear reactions” is usually attributed to some reactions of direct or reverse b-decay having, as a rule, extremely interaction cross section and applied for detection of neutrino (antineutrino). The author considers, contrary, that a great majority of intense reactions of b-decay, nuclear fission and partly of fusion, formerly described without participation of neutrinos as an input, are neutrino-driven ones.
The facts listed below demonstrate that the reactions of direct and reverse b-decay, including nuclear fission and partly nuclear fusion, are driven from the outside.
Significance of a radioactive decay rate variation and its correlation with the solar activity variation is demonstrated after some decades long observations.
Variation of decay rate after variation of crystalline and chemical environment was observed since the 40th years of the XX-th century.
Variation of nuclear transmutation rates is even more significant after low energy non-nuclear actions on media (cold fusion and transmutation of nuclei).
It was also stated that the Chernobyl accident produced radioisotopes (in particular, 137Cs) for some years after their fallout had reduced half-life periods (3.5 and 17 years for 1988 and 1992 years’ samples, correspondingly), hereinafter asymptotically incremental up to the conventional values (30.6 years).
And, last but not least: there are some data on an opportunity of radioisotopes decay and other nuclear transformations initiating by means of so-called torsion radiation (scalar fields, non-hertzian energy and so on).
We suggest the hypothesis of neutrino-driven nuclear reactions for explication of abnormally fast nuclear reactions surveyed above and conformities to natural laws observed under the noted reactions proceeding.
The not-high energy neutrino (NNN) is abundant in Nature, which is a solid fact. The author suggest that correct interpretation of many other authors’ experimental data allow the conclusion that NNN is not an inert particle but can be focused (concentrated) and then captured by condensed matter, absorbed or desorbed in any physical, chemical and biological process accompanied by the entropy change (reversible or irreversible ones) and, perhaps, generated artificially using appropriate devices.
Suggested mechanism of the not-high energy neutrino (NNN) interaction with matter is, first of all, an electron-neutrino couple (en) formation in atom that causes a series of secondary effects at nuclear, atomic and molecular levels of matter.
The hypothesis provides explication to conformities to natural laws of radioactive and "stable" nuclides transmutation rate variation by low energy non-nuclear actions on nuclei and can be testified experimentally.
