The recent observation of a large electron screening effect in the d(d, p)t reaction using a deuterated Ta target has been confirmed using somewhat different experimental approaches: U-e = 309 +/- 12 eV for the electron screening potential energy. The high U, value arises from the environment of the deuterons in the Ta matrix, but a quantitative explanation is missing.
