    Abstract

    The work performed at Risø in connection with the claims of »cold fusion« is summarised in this report. The main purpose of the whole experiment was to analyse if structural anomalies of deuterated metals could support the occurrence of fusion processes in such systems by x-ray and neutron powder diffraction methods. Two types of systems were investigated. The first one was an electrolytic cell with palladium as electrode. No anomalous properties in the composition and positions of deuterium were found in this case. The other one was a titanium- deuteriumgas system which was studied in order to reproduce the »Frascati experiment«. However, no neutrons above the background level were observed in spite of the very sensitive detector system. By neutron diffraction of this system a 70% titanium-dideuterium phase was found.
