Budko & Korshunov – Another Negative Replication Set

Two Russian scientists, Budko and Korshunov, have published a paper detailing a series of 17 experiments attempting to replicate the “Rossi effect.” Sadly, they have contributed to the growing list of negative replication attempts. Unfortunately, they only ran the temp up to 800C. They note that they plan on attaining higher temperatures. They utilized different mixtures of nickel powder, Al2O3 power (alumina), and LiAlH4 (lithium aluminum hydride). They utilized a variety of power input schemes (DC, DC pulsed, AC).
This is more useful science showing what does not work. Unfortunately, the ratio of negative replications to positive replications has grown quite large raising the strong possibility that the few positive replications are in error. If this is not the case, then it may mean the effect is very difficult to reproduce.
