Re: Second attempt at Smallest Fusor fusion claim.

Thank you all for your feedback. Richard Hull: I understand your experience with IEC Fusors and other Fusion devices is far past that of my own. My BTI detector was relativity new and could detect neutrons just fine from my larger reactor even after the small burn marks, I could post pictures of the...

Re: Second attempt at Smallest Fusor fusion claim.

Hey, sorry for the delayed reply. I have been absolutely swamped in school, I will be able to adress all of these later tonight. Thank you for your patience.

Archived - Second attempt at Smallest Fusor fusion claim.

Hello once again, I have been working very hard to get rock solid evidence of Neutron production from my 1.33" IEC device. Since my last attempt, I have added an electronic D2 flow meter and controller as well as a more substantial electrical feedthrough capable of handling the higher voltages witho...

Re: The long awaited 1.33" Fusor construction write up.

<t>This is the much more capable feedthrough I will be using. As you can see on the ATM side, there is FAR more insulation and the feedthrough stalk material is much more substantial. Well, to be fair, I claimed fusion the first time using a bubble detector and comparing the background bubble count ...

Re: The long awaited 1.33" Fusor construction write up.

<t>Indeed. Using the classic I=E/R where I=current,E=voltage(9 in this case), and R=resistance(1 in this case). So this would be about 9A, but that sounds very high, so would it be 9ma? I make no claim to electrical knowledge, just trying to learn. Again, I am getting the much larger electrical feed...

Re: The long awaited 1.33" Fusor construction write up.

Hm, come to think of it, I only know for sure it went above 1k because it maxed out the voltmeter, but my biggest problem is the arcing on the atm side of the chamber which I believe will be fixed with the new feedthrough. Any surefire way to tell actual grid voltage being applied?

Re: The long awaited 1.33" Fusor construction write up.

<t>I am positive it handled 15kv@30ma of AC, but I am agreeing with you on the voltage for DC. I turned the local control on the glassman to max but the properties of the amperage drop, plasma, and pressure defiantly took a toll on it. Yes, like I said, I am getting a much mor substantial feedthroug...

The long awaited 1.33" Fusor construction write up.

<t>The following are the images of the entire process of building the Fusor followed by plasma pictures. All mounting hardware is 316SS plated in 99.999% Silver to act as lubricant, the only exception is the MD5 leak valve which was lubricated with KJLC brand anti-sieze lubrication for threads.<br/>...

Re: Worlds smallest Fusor.

Yes, I believe that is it. I will confirm when I am near the unit tonight. Will Jack sent me the manual for this series glassman to make a controller, I seem to have misplaced them. Would anybody on here have access to these documents and a scanner? Thanks.
