Abstract
The energy spectra of neutrons in the cold-fusion phenomenon measured by Br essani et al. in a Ti/D gas loading system were analyzed with the TNCF mode l proposed by one of the authors (H. Kozima). The result shows that the dat a of positive results are interpreted consistently with a value of the adju stable parameter n(n) = 10(4)-10(7) cm(-3). These values of n(n) are in the smallest range of values determined hitherto in various materials used in the cold-fusion experiments with positive results. A possible cause of the small value of the parameter n(n) is discussed taking into consideration th e characteristics of the sample.
