Figure 1. Effect of applied current on the fraction of evolving gas being recombined. The present work uses LiOD+D2O with a 4 cm2 cathode and Pt mesh anode. The data given by Jones et al. (15 ) is converted to fraction of recombination by dividing the measured apparent excess power by the applied power, assuming no anomalous energy is being produced. These values are based on 1 cm2 and 4 cm2 nickel cathodes. The calculations of Will (16 ) are based on a cathode area of 1 cm2.
