|Summary||The existence of effects of the condensed matter state on the state of nuclei has been established in a continuing series of experiments begun nearly 20 years ago. It has become clear that the release of nuclear energy in these chemical systems depends upon subtle correlation effects created within the condensed matter state, particularly where hydrogen is loaded into metals. A workshop was conducted 25-28 October 2006 at NRL where a review of the experimental evidence was conducted and areas of fruitful research were identified. Since the workshop DTRA has identified the engineering of a heat production experiment as the vehicle for expanding our understanding of the basic physical processes. We shall use inferencing methods for building phenomenological models from experimental evidence to organize the analysis of the standard experiment. We shall organize workshops to consolidate the DTRA co-deposition standard experiments.|
