No. 79: Jan-Feb 1992
Buried among other news items in R&D Magazine for November 1991, we find:
A research team at Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corp., Tokyo, claims to have created nuclear fusion at room temperature not by electrolysis, but by placing heavy hydrogen on the surface of a metal in a vacuum and discharging electricity for 14 hours. In five out of 14 tests, the team identified protons apparently emitted as a result of a nuclear fusion reaction.
