Re: Fission-Fusion Hybrid Calculations

JakeJHecla: Do you know where I would be able to find the OpenMC software? I am having trouble finding a place to download it. My reactor design is unlike most as instead of fuel rods, it uses hexagonal and pentagonal pellets with an area of 2-3cm and a width of 1cm to make a spherical casing (much ...

Fission-Fusion Hybrid Calculations

I am nearing my first fusor operation, probably within a week or two. The goal with my fusor is to get a neutron measurement and power input measurement in order to calculate the efficiency of a fission-fusion hybrid. In order to calculate the efficiency however, I will need to calculate the "K" fac...

Voltage Tripler with NST

Greetings, I have been searching for a cost effective method for powering my fusor. After researching the forums, and looking over ebay, I was curious to see if the combination of a 12kv 30mA NST with a voltage tripler from a CRT monitor would be a sufficient power supply. My questions about this ar...
