Creator: MIT Club of Northern California
Summary: Professor Hagelstein, who is a principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) and an associate professor at MIT, traces the early history of cold fusion, highlighting important results and implications along the way. He reviews the theoretical issues and present his own model of what is going on, followed by a discussion of an experimental effort to test the model, with some preliminary results. Finally, he will discuss what he considers to be the necessary future directions in order to achieve commercialization.
