Abstract

In the last decades huge theoretical effort was devoted to the development of consistent theoretical models, aiming to solve the so-called “measurement problem”. Among these, the Dynamical Reduction Models possess the unique characteristic to be experimentally testable, thus enabling to set experimental upper bounds on the reduction rate parameter λ characterizing these models. By analysing the X-ray spectrum emitted by an isolated slab of Germanium, we set the most stringent limit on the λ parameter up to date.
