Submission + - Ultra-Dense Deuterium - Fusion Fuel Found? 1

Omomyid writes: Scientists at the University of Gothenberg have successfully produced very small amounts of Ultra-dense Deuterium. It's so dense that a 10 cm3 cube would weigh 130 tons. UDD is 1 million times more dense than deuterium ice, a common fuel in laser-ignited fusion projects and would vastly improve the chances of starting a fusion reaction as the atoms are much closer together.

    Here's a link to one of the papers (may require subscription outside a research institution; I can't check from here): http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.ijms.2009.02.014 [doi.org]

    It looks like this phase exists in a few atoms for a few femtoseconds. They're saying it's a sort of "inverted metal", with deuterons moving in the electric field of the electrons. (In normal meta
