Given the discussions we have been having here regarding the possible mechanism behind the E-Cat reaction, I thought it was interesting to see a couple of Q&A’s on the Journal of Nuclear Physics in this area:

Which is the peak quantity of the specter of the radiations you have been able to detect inside the Ecat?
August 29, 2016 at 7:29 AM
Borderline in between X-Rays and Gamma, around 50 keV.

Dear Andrea Rossi,
Did you change idea about the chance that electron capture could explain the LENR?
August 29, 2016 at 7:25 AM
Absolutely not. Electron capture in LENR is impossible. It can happen only with atoms overweighted with protons, and this is not our case.
Rossi has always said that the E-Cat is perfectly safe because they never are able to measure radiation beyond background levels outside the E-Cat, but here he clearly states that there is radiation inside the reactor that somehow apparently never escapes. For a quick reference, here’s an image from the Mirion Technologies website about different types of radiation and the shielding required to block them.
