Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The man seems legitimate.  The cited research articles describes evidence that deuterium is adsorbed into the catalyst and that energy in excess of the input is generated when the apparatus is appropriately energized, that excess energy production declines when the apparatus is de=energized, and that the excess energy is only produced when all of the requisite elements are present in the required configuration.  The New Energy Times, which is devoted to "cold fusion" research, is the only one to report generation of He4 and they don't describe the verification protocols.  Were that gap closed in a peer reviewed paper I would hope another lab would try to replicate and publish.  

So they may look a little foolish if their results are negative.  Others could look more foolish should the results be confirmed.  Is there any known reason why a fusion process could not be catalyzed?  At this time the Arata apparatus appears to be capable of being a very expensive coffee warmer, but it would be "proof of principal."
