Abstract
Since summer 2009 we have been trying to measure high energy emissions from natural lightning. High energy measurements are accompanied with high speed videos, electric field measurements and total lightning detection. For the two year campaign, in only one case we have been able to measure x-rays, even when we have been very close to the lightning channel. The graph in figure 1a plots the x rays detections and the electric field of the downward leader. A detail of a burst is indicated in figure...
