Today’s High Technology companies, particularly those involved in defense related research, are utilizing advances associated with physics research to an increasing extent. Many of the devices and technologies employed in advanced sensors and computing are leveraging breakthroughs in physics and related disciplines. These breakthroughs encompass quantum optics, quantum information, nano-science, solid state physics, superconductivity, materials science and many other disciplines. One of the more interesting recent developments are the significant advances being made in explaining low energy Nuclear Fusion and the associated experimental results. I will be summarizing some of the leading theoretical and experimental results in the area of “Cold Fusion”.
