Abstract

In the last decades huge theoretical effort was devoted to the development of consistent theoretical models, aiming to solve the so-called \u201cmeasurement problem\u201d. 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 \u3bb characterizing these models. By analysing the X-ray spectrum emitted by an isolated slab of Germanium, we set the most stringent limit on the \u3bb parameter up to date
