Recently Academia pushedn that ICCF6 article to me
It seems a reasonable experiment, that the author judge modestly as not definitive, with
- excess heat
- He4 measurement
- X-ray film
- correlation of He4 with Heat+Radiations energy

The energy balance between heat excess and 4He in the gas phase has been found reasonably satisfied even if the low levels of 4He found do not give the necessary confidence to state definitely that we are dealing with the fusion of deuterons to give 4He. In the melted cathode, whose data are reported here, 4He was not found at the achieved sensitivity. X-ray film, positioned at 50 mm from the cell, roughly gave the image of the cathode through spots. The energy of the radiation and the total energy associated to it have been, respectively, evaluated as (89±1) keV and (12.0 ± 0.4) kJ. This value is ≈ 0.5% of the energy measured by calorimetry in the same interval of time.
The experimental setup seems described in older papers

How do you judge that paper?
can we put it in perspective (expecially the X-Ray measurements) with recent theories...
