UV, XUV and X-rays 

Photographic detection of "dark cloud" regions during hydroxide electro-detonation testing is consistent with the generation of electromagnetic emissions beyond the visible range, i.e. in the ultraviolet, extreme ultraviolet and/or x-ray range.

These "dark cloud" regions are generated when catalytic electrodes constructed from specific alloy composition/s are used.

"Dark cloud" morphology and colour  varies when specific catalyst hydroxides are detonated.

Electromagnetic emissions beyond the visible range may be consistent with a reaction mechanism that differs from conventional chemistry such as a transition/s from ground state or excited states, to a de-excited state/s. 


Method:  Fuel mixes were detonated using electical discharge.

Observations:  Certain combinations of electrodes and fuels have been slown to produce light flashes with significant emissions outside of the visible light spectrum, in the ultraviolet, extreme ultraviolet and x-ray parts of the spectrum.  Detonations producing ultraviolet emissions and beyond were also often accompanied by a loud audible sound.

Conclusion:  Observations are consistent with a reaction mechanism that differs from conventional chemistry.
