Mitsubishi Reports Toyota Replication (December 7, 2012)
Researchers from Toyota Central Research and Development Laboratories performed an independent replication of a Mitsubishi low-energy nuclear reaction transmutation experiment, according to a physicist from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries speaking at the American Nuclear Society LENR session on Nov. 14 in San Diego, Calif.

The physicist, Yasuhiro Iwamura, told the ANS audience that the Toyota researchers confirmed that nuclear changes from one element to another took place without the use of high-energy nuclear physics. Most scientists who have not followed this field closely consider such profound claims inconceivable. Toyota used a LENR deuterium-permeation transmutation method that Iwamura invented.

Iwamura has been working with this LENR method for 14 years. He said that one of his LENR transmutations was closely but not identically replicated by Toyota. Osaka University and Iwate University previously reported similar replications.

So Iwamura is doing research for Mitsubishi.

It is hard to find academic papers about this stuff: Iwamura has at least one from 2002, but it was published in a Japanese journal (in English) which I'm not sure is widely read outside Japan.

Though working with Palladium hydrides, Iwamura does not mention 'cold fusion' nor does he cite Fleischmann and Pons.
