It cannot as far as I know. There are examples in the literature such as Iwamura where transmutations were detected but no attempt was made to measure excess heat. But I do not know of any examples in which calorimetry was performed, transmutations were found, but no excess heat was detected. In Iwamura's early experiments, he did use calorimetry and he did detect heat. If you count tritium production as a transmutation I guess there are examples of that. I suspect there was excess heat but it was too small to measure. > Has anybody checked for transmutation using a SEM after a failed test? > Samples have not been subjected to high resolution mass spectrometry yet.
