Abstract: A loss mechanism, which is analogous to the parametric amplifier mechanism, is suggested to explain the energy loss and the lack of fast charged fusion products that are created in a laser-like mechanism of low energy nuclear fusion reaction of deuterons in crystalline environment. The bosonic nature of deuterons is utilised to derive favourable initial deuteron concentrations for the d + d ? 4He fusion reaction in crystalline Pd. The initial deuteron motion in the direction perpendicular to the crystal planes is selected by the Bragg’s law and this mode is field quantised. Fusion reaction favours those deuteron concentrations at which the energy of the quantised mode equals the energy of the optical phonon. The favourable deuteron concentrations are calculated.
