Re: Institutional Quackery

¿Is this for serious?
I mean, it's the IEEE.
¿Could it really be fake, and still be published in such a presigious institution?

Re: Demo Fusor Suggestions

As Dennis has correctly pointed out, NST are a better solution that MOTs for two reasons. The first one being safety. While a shock from a Neon Sign Transformer can cause great harm, its current limiting still allows you to have a chance to survive. MOTs, in the other hand, are not that kind. Rated ...

Re: Overview of D-D and D-T Fusion Detectors

Tritium itself is extremely expensive, aside from being radioactive, as others here have mentioned. Any type of metallurgy with this material is WAY beyond amateur experience; doing any type of "alloy" with Paladium and Tritium can be regarded only as a dream. Furthermore, there is a reason why lite...

Re: Frequency effect in the operation of a MOT.

Hello: I am making this post to present a conclusion in the brief empirical study that I tried to conduct regarding the effects that different frequencies had in the operation of a MOT, hoping that it could be useful to any demo fusioneers making the necessary Power Supply. The conclusion reached is...

Re: Frequency effect in the operation of a MOT.

Rich: First of all, thanks for the well-explained and thoughtful comment. It was my first time posting in the forum and I was afraid I was doing something wrong. With regards to the input voltage, I hooked up an oscilloscope to the primary and monitored the amplitude of the waveform during all the t...

Frequency effect in the operation of a MOT.

Hi: I recently became the happy owner of an old MOT. I have been perusing the FAQs and found this post (viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4843) where it is stated that fusor demo operation is normally located in the 3-10 kV range. Considering that the output of such a transformer is around 2,2kV with plenty of c...

Greetings from Spain.

Hello: My name is Cai Arcos, currently living in Barcelona, Spain. I'm most interested in High Voltage electronics and Plasma Physics. The construction of a Demo Fusor is being planned and, hopefully, started soon. I hope I can be of assistance in this forum, although taking into account my extremel...
