Protecting against high energetic beam

Hey guys, I was really busy with my school work and research and haven't come by lately. But, I'll back in the game, a little bit different game though since I bought this bad boy. However, people have been telling me that I should look into options to protect the viewport. Tyler told me that I shou...

Re: Deuterium Acquired

Are you sure the $20,000 is for Argon not Xenon ? Cause that would totally make sense.

Re: Vacuum Greese

I've never used the npt fittings before but I can give you advice about vacuum grease in general. Think of vacuum grease the same way as the thermal compound you applied between the CPU and the heat sink. The thermal compound is design to filled up the microscopic holes on the surfaces, thus improvi...

Re: Starting an accelerator project

Thank you Dennis for the pictures and Richard for the support. Dennis, I have just noticed that there are two tubes coming out of the faraday cage. I presume that the left translucent one is for the deuterium but can you explain what the other tube is for? Also, I have read through your linear accel...

Starting an accelerator project

Hey guys, I just want to keep you update on the progress of this linear accelerator project. I have scrounged most of the vacuum equipment I needed on the internet and will probably re-use most of the parts from my fusor. Also. Bill have donated the accelerator tube that's needed for this project. H...

Re: How did you get your vacuum chamber?

Daniel,

next time, please post this type of question "New User Chat Area" if you are not sure they're on FAQ and also change your username to full name (It's the rule of the forum). :)

good luck!

rf cavities - how does it work?

I'm researching different ways on how particle accelerator insert energy into the charge particle. However, CERN statement on their LHC confused me a bit. "A high-power electron beam inside the klystron modulates at 400 MHz. Power is extracted through a rectangular pipe of conducting metal called a ...

Re: The color of IEC plasma

I can think of two possible explanation: 1. Less gas molecule, less photon emitted. So, from the perspective of the human eye, the gas might look bluish white. 2. Less pressure, greater mean-free-path, higher energy in each molecule. The energy level of the gas molecule shifted from purple, to UV or...

Re: Glass blowing for vacuum work

Hey Roberto, Thank you for giving me the links to that website! I didn't know there's a company that specialize in such fields. The calculation haven't been made so the length haven't been specified. However, I am 80% certain that I will be needing this type of adapter for the project. I will try to...
