Re: dynamic fusor patent, Salvatore Pais

Clearly the patent system in the USA is totally dysfunctional and even corrupt, and this work is easy to categorize as 'fake news' without any demonstrated embodiment. But laughing grey-beards are a poor indicator of the worth of new ideas if history is any guide.. Does anyone know of other groups w...

Re: dynamic fusor patent, Salvatore Pais

I understand that the deep experience of the folks on this board would tend to a skeptical viewpoint but come'on let's pick it apart just a little more than that.. I doubt I understand it, but apparently the claim is that some piezoelectric effect used to create a coherent 'spinning and/or accelerat...

Re: Weekend plasma project: nitrogen afterglow tube

Very cool! In the photos it appears that the discharge is effected by the presence of your hand on the tube, is this just a coincidence? Or are you somehow interacting with the discharge?

thanks,
Stefan

Re: Hot fusion idea

<t>So the plasmoid target is a stationary FRC in a hollow space in the center of the sphere. The shock wave is initiated on the surface of the sphere and travels toward the center through the medium ( i.e. liquid Pb/Li ) but to compress the target the hollow core must collapse and have the liquid Pb...

Re: Hot fusion idea

<t>I agree that probably most everyone on the NIF payroll can point to specific successes..<br/> <br/> In the acoustic design ( specifically the General Fusion but also the original post on this thread ), how is the plasma target protected from being quenched by material carrying the shock wave? <br...

Re: Hot fusion idea

<t>Hi,<br/> <br/> >> 1) Sound wave system would be difficult to set up. It requires extreme precision, as a malformed or ill-timed wavefront would not converge to a point, but instead cause some random shapeless disturbance, while the pressure accumulated at the center would be much less, both becau...
