Last May, this column reported advances made in small modular
reactor technology as a follow-up to a description of a fusion concept for
electricity generation in a May 2007 article. Please accept my apology for

Demonstrated Oct. 28, 2011, at Italy’s University of Bologna, “E-Cat” is a type of cold fusion, or low-energy nuclear reaction, that is as
controversial as anything considered by world scientists.
