Is it possible to split water with magnetic fields?

    Does anyone know if they have considered using ultra high efficiency magnets to create an oscillating pulse into the energy of the electron orbital shells? This may in turn break the Coulomb barrier.

    your statement doesn't make sense, magnets don't have a frequency

    Can a slow change in the flux make a sort of magnetic pulse with a frequency of its oscillation. I mean thats what causes inductive heating.

    So far it appears researchers have tried to increase the repoducibility or heat output of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions by using lasers, electrical pulse, microwaves but no one has yet thought to use magnetic fields created by "Bitter Magnets" or imploding magnets to increase the anomalous heat ("excess heat) reaction.

    Can your post some links to peer-reviewed journal articles? Or even some arXiv articles?

    Edmund Storms has written about this. Do you have evidence to dispute my contention?

    "Edmund Storms has written about this" is not a credible source (hell, nothing Edmund Storms has written is a credible source). Even so, that's not how PF works. If you make a claim, you need to be able to back it up with a credible source. Such a source is one that is published either in a peer-reviewed journal, or a paper in the arXiv at a Mentors discretion (read: something you might expect that will soon be published).

    Cold fusion is not a topic for PF. Thread closed.
