Re: Alternative Reactor Design

Better control is one major plus for Fusion/Fission but also there is the potential for fission fuel breeding using the Fusion generated neutrons. For example using UF6, which is a waste product of fission fuel production, the fusion generated neutrons can transmute the U238 into Plutonium. Another ...

Re: Positive Electrostatic Fusion Reactor

A few points. The proposed design has a greater concentration of focused ions. These ions should move in only two directions resulting in more fusion reactions. Charged ions are "attractive", so little confinement should be necessary. An "floating positive grid" as discussed by would be an interesti...

Re: Positive Electrostatic Fusion Reactor

The Plates: I seems that the plate would work, however the charge would be on both side of the plates so the electrical input would have to be doubled to account for this.

Re: Positive Electrostatic Fusion Reactor

Sorry for the delay. An alternative to getting a positive charge around the chamber would be to use permanent magnets. If the goal is to control strays this should work.

Re: Positive Electrostatic Fusion Reactor

Repulsive charge of the ions in the beam is not a problem because like charges moving in the same direction are actually attractive rather than repulsive. This only becomes a problem when the ions slow down or stop and even this can be used to advantage by allowing the ions to expand without the use...

Re: Differential Chamber Wall Materials

"As mentioned many times, the fusor fuses, it can't really be improved to an marked degree" I will consider that an opinion.

Positive Electrostatic Fusion Reactor

Many in the fusion community is just now coming to the conclusion that in order to get higher fusion rates you have to focus on the ions rather than the electrons. This is true of all machines including Fusors, Polywells, Tokamaks, etc. This is called “new theory”, yet fusion has always been about c...

Alternative Reactor Design

I am looking at a change in the basic architecture of the Fusor as the starting point for future development, possibly leading to a Fusion/Fission reactor. I have rearranged the Fusor in an attempt to make it more effective. I call this the Linear Focused Fusion Reactor. The Linear Focused Fusion Re...
