Re: The tiniest of detectors

That is perfect honestly! I've passed it along to the biohacker guys to see what they think but that really does seem like the perfect size. And seemingly it has fairly good resolution for something so tiny.

Re: The tiniest of detectors

The reason it needs to be small is because it is potentially being inserted into a bioproof container and implanted into a person. It wasn't my idea, im simply asking for the guy who thought it'd be cool. He wants a tiny geiger counter he can implant into himself. So I'm looking into how it could be...

Re: The tiniest of detectors

As I mentioned it doesn't need to be professional. More of an indication of radiation more than anything. Something to let you know if theres a sudden spike or you're near something really warm. Ideally this needs a far smaller footprint than a phone. Think size of a quarter ideally.

The tiniest of detectors

Hello all. Been a few years. I'm working with a group and we're hoping to create the smallest radiation detector we possible can. I thought who better to ask than the fusion boards. The requirments are thus: must run on a small watch battery that can be recharged must be no thicker than a quarter in...

Re: Potential safety setup

To start I'll only be running at 100kev so if memory servers the protection I outlined should be sufficient. I'm however more worried about what happens when the power is brought any higher than that. That said I'm no expert so if i'm wrong PLEASE correct me.

Re: Potential safety setup

<t>I should have mentioned the target. The dual beams converge on small deuterated target right in the middle. Can't be seen in the picture obviously. I was going to have some sort of grid to deal with the back flow of electrons but I wasn't sure of the best place to put it. Although I was probably ...

Re: Potential safety setup

I'm not sure to be honest. Im still in the acquiring and designing stage so I can adjust it acordingly. I would like to take it up to 500kev but I'm not sure.

Potential safety setup

<t>Due to the odd nature of my design I thought it'd be best to ask first and see what ya'll think about the precautions I'll eb putting in place. For those who saw my other post detailing my design you'll know it is essentially 2 potential drop accelerators aimed at each other. The biggest problem ...

Re: Back to building. Now with a new design.

<t>The original plan was that if this doesn't work out, have it re configurable to be a straight linac. Which is really really easy to do. I've wanted to play with a linac for a while but i figured before I do that, See if I can get some research done on how these things work for fusion between two ...

Re: Back to building. Now with a new design.

<t>I think I'll stick with the regular linac instead of going with an rf design only because I know what my build limits are. Also I'm looking forward to the fun of getting the beams lined up with this. I knew going into this that it'll be hard as hell to get everything lined up. One idea i was toyi...
