In the framework of LENR studies, especially devoted to get Anomalous Heat Effects (AHE), since 2011 experiments have been performed using Constantan ($Cu_{55}Ni_{44}Mn_{1}$) because large values of the catalytic energy (3 eV) provides $H_{2}\rightarrow 2H$ dissociation. Over time, the fabrication procedure was improved adding $Sr-Fe-KMnO_{4}$-glass fiber to the submicrometric surface of thin Constant wires. Latest experiments had fibers still wetted by D2O: AHE has been observed since the beginning of experiments. The behavior of plot resistance-current, last applied along the wire, is similar to $diode$ Zener $effect$. Lasted for current up to 700 mA, along full wire of 120 cm length, when it absorbed Deuterium, under closed-air atmosphere. The effect seems to be correlated with AHE.
