I decided to click the PDF link and help you out:
"Giuseppe Levi Bologna University, Bologna, Italy
Evelyn Foschi Bologna, Italy
Bo HÃistad, Roland Pettersson and Lars TegnÃ©r Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
Hanno EssÃ©n Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden"
Considering you got 2 mod points for claiming it's secrecy ...
Uppsala universitet was funded 1477, it's the oldest university in the Nordic countries.
Bo HÃistad is a professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Nuclear Physics.
Roland Pettersson is at the Department of Chemistry - BMC, analytic chemistry.
Lars Tegner is a professor emeritus at the Department of technological science, electricity.
KTH / the royal institute of technology is the largest and oldest .. uhm.. college? whatever of technology in Sweden.
Hanno EssÃ©n describes himself on a webpage as:
"Universitetslektor (retired), Department of Mechanics, KTH
Docent, Theoretical Physics, Stockholm University
I am a retired, but still active in research, senior lecturer (associate professor) at the Department of Mechanics, KTH, Stockholm, Sweden. Former Director of undergraduate studies (studierektor) 1990-2012 and former chairman of the Swedish Skeptics (FÃreningen Vetenskap och Folkbildning, VoF)."
I can only assume the Italians are of similar qualification.
Bologna University, founded 1088!! 85 000 students in 23 schools!
Giuseppe Levi is a researcher in their Department of Physics and Astronomy:

Evelyn Foschi is a Doctor (Fields of research: Physical Sciences, Engineering and Technology Â Engineering Â Electrical and Electronic Engineering) at the Department of Physics at the university of Bologna (http://www.intechopen.com/profiles/108904/Evelyn-Foschi)
I don't know what they are allowed to do and isn't. I assume they may be doing their best from what they are free to do with the device.
