Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>Josh, I have downloaded a DWG reader.<br/> <br/> I have also worked up my copy's of the Auto CAD file you posted and I have the math all worked out, I plan on cutting them out this week if I can get the machine time. It's just a couple of minutes on the machine, I'll cut one set, and check out th...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>Dave, Here's a tip.<br/> lenssavers.com The company is International Crystal Laboratories. You can look on their web site for the lens saver product. They tend to be hydroscopic, so one must keep them dry, but the system would be under vacuum, by simply closing a valve at the vacuum pump to hold ...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>Dave, We have not talked before, here on this forum, but here's a thought, a sacrifice disk/ cover glass, can be placed in front of the real window to take the sputtering contamination beating from burning in a grid. A simple solution as it's done very often for expensive laser lenses used in Las...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>Josh here is my copy of a bit map file of the flat patterns I worked up. I have created them in DXF format for my laser programming software, minus dimensions as they are not needed to program the parts. I am not going to use a cutter compensation as it won't be needed. The beam when focused is o...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>I can easily create such DXF files and in fact I have stated to do so even before your reply posting. I will add in the slots simply to make assembly a snap, literally. With a few tack welds it would be done. Tungsten is durable, but due to it's lack of ductility and brittleness and resistance el...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>Josh, how did it work for you? Do you have any recommendations on the diameters of these grid pieces. As you know they can easily be made to about any size needed, What about the inner grid? And what material did you use? <br/> <br/> I can get time in a shop to make many of these, and TIG weld th...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

Stainless steel? What about using more segments in the design as well.

One should check out Unitednuclear.com

Uranium Ore samples, and Receiver tubes for home made Xray machines, and other cool stuff. Lithium, and Beryllium sources.

Got to run...

Re: Lithium vapor injected into fusor with deuterium fusion initiation.

<t>Carl, <br/> <br/> Thanks for the info about your website, a well done site it is. I knew about the vacuum, but I don't want to give out too much info for the same reasons you did not say more about your device. I consider any info we can share here or else where to be purely a topic of interest a...

A linear fusor, not spherical grid design. D-T measured out put was done at 14 MeV! at 90 Kv. Now that has my attention. Lot's of good stuff at this site. You should check it out. This is a good site for all to check out here.
