Commercial IEC fusors

Hey,

Has anyone checked out this site?

http://www.nsd-fusion.com/index.php

They claim to be building small IEC fusors as a long lasting neutron source and apparently build to spec (within limits).. They appear to have some prestigious customers...

Strange, saw RH say once that virtually nobody sold Fusors - Though I've only read the core performance and homepage of the site, so I'm not too sure what they are really.

But from what I have read they seem kinda like Fusors? Especially with the 8 inch shell and the geometry diagrams look a lot like what goes on in one of the Hirsch-Meeks, though again, I'm not really sure.

Give 'em time and see if they take off. The Daimler-Chrysler effort with U of I was a flop and probably better funded. What's th' all up price?
