Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

The great eye opener in my case was reading Cagle's theory on how a fusion bomb really works. Can be found in the part The Physics of Successfull Fusion. Below are two schematic drawings of H-bombs. In both of them can be seen a grey plate between primary and secondary. What's it for? It transforms...

Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

To Futter, Hull and Kunkle: dont write it off as nonsense until you can really be sure that it's nonsense! Cagle's physics that is. In 1958 two swedish guys claimed that they had been in a fight with UFO-nauts that looked like grey dough. UFO-Sverige has written a long report on the case, many, many...

Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

PS I work in a nuclear Physics laboratory and what you want to do is not possible until a ready source of high yielding flux capacitors is to be had ( all rights here to back to the future) Flux capacitors? What I claim is that towards the end of the tail of the bremsstrahlung continuum, there can ...

Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

The amount of "proton" produced Bremsstrahlung is essentially zero in a fusor; The mechanism for fusion in a Fusor or a Tokamak is just that the fuel nuclei happen to be close in momentum space. This is Charles S. Cagle's mechanism for fusion. He removed his web-page, but you can find it in the lin...

Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

Sven I cannot think how you would measure your "gamma bremsstrahlung" in amonst a ton of x-ray bremsstrahlung as the detector cannot distinguish whether the energy recieved is gamma or x-ray It's a challenge, but I think it can be done. It requires, of course, a physics lab; it's nothing you can do...

Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

No, it doesn't. Nor do you really get what that process is if you think MeV protons just slow/stop because of a similar positive force. If the projectile nucleus travels exactly on a trajectory that aims it towards a target nucleus, and if it has lost little or no kinetic energy from previous defle...

Re: Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

Mark Oliphant is generally credited with discovering fusion via experiemnt in the 1932-33 time frame. The reason I pursue this is that I suspect that the nuclei, when they fuse in a beam fusion experiment are actually standing still relative to one another. The projectile nucleus gives up all or al...

Not quite; I want the whole story. What happens at low energies is particularly important. I also have difficulties understanding that database. But, thanks for your reply anyway!

Review article on beam/accelerator driven fusion?

You can accelerate nuclei of any light element and direct it to a target, that is usually solid. The first experiment of such a kind, was done with accelerated protons against a lithium target, I think. Thousands (or perhaps even tens of thousands) of such experiments have been done. The result of t...
