Over seventy reviewed publications and monographs resulted from this work as well as several books, all describing an assortment of material properties.

He presently lives in Santa Fe where he is investigating the "cold fusion" effect in his own laboratory. These studies have resulted in thirty presentations to various conferences including the ACS, APS, and ICCF. In addition, over 50 papers have been published including four complete scientific reviews of the field, one published in 1991, another in 1996 and 1998, again in 2000 ( with the latest in 2010 (Naturwissenschaften). He published a book on the subject in 2007 (World Scientific). In May 1993, he was invited to testify before a congressional committee about the "cold fusion" effect. In 1998, Wired magazine honored him as one of the 25 people in the US who is making a significant contribution to new ideas. He was awarded the Preparata Medal.
