For explaining the surface mechanism of deuterium reactions in palladium and titanium (clod fusion or neutron swapping) leading to strong tritium production and isotope shifts in palladium, the mechanism of an exotic deuterium plasma with possible short nuclear distance by thermal motion was introduced. Using a new model of the surface tension of metals, resulting in a «swimming electron layer», the increase of the concentration of deuterons and the decrease of their distance cause a higher cold fusion in the surface layer by orders of magnitudes compared with the bulk material.
