Thanks to LT for the following post about a Q&A he had with Andrea Rossi on the Journal of Nuclear Physics. I think it raises some interesting issues that could be of interest, especially to replicators.
I posted the following question to Andrea Rossi and got the answer as shown below
Dear Andrea Rossi,
Concerning the working of the ECAT I have the following questions :
1- Is it true that a (changing) magnetic field will stop/slow the low energy nuclear reaction in the ECAT
2- When no magnetic field is present the reaction can occur ?

1- yes in some configurations
2- this is an object of a patent application on course and I cannot make predisclosure
As I read Rossi’s comment he confirms that a changing magnetic field can stop the LENR reaction.
It might also explain why so many replication attempts fail. Possibly due to the magnetic field generated by the heating element. So it could useful to use a bifilair wound heating element or two coils with opposite fields in replication attempts.
