Re: First Neutrons in Fusor II

Hello All! First I'd like to say thank you for all the nice words and congratulations. I would just like to point out that this is not Scott and I's first fusion.

First Fusion Claim for Jack and Scott's Fusor

Written Overview: Neutron Detection- For our neutron detection we currently use a LND-2520 Helium 3 Proportional Counter with a NVTH value of 21 cps/nv. This probe is driven by a Johnson model 10 rate meter. This rate meter is very similar to a ludlum model 3 as it has an adjustable voltage within ...

Re: Differential Chamber Wall Materials

Hello All, Thank you all for your extremely insightful and thought provoking responses to Scott and I's project ideas. I just wanted to jump on in here and bring up the "hot spots" some have noticed with their Fusors. I wanted to see if any of you had any insight to why this may be and if any of you...

Re: Homemade Feedthrough

Looks very well done Liam!
Do you happen to have a schematic drawn up or more pictures of the assembly process. I am very curious as to how you set this up and how it looks on the grid-end of the feedthrough.
Thanks,
Jack Rosky
