Re: Help using Canberra 8701 ADC for MCA and *more* Neutron Issues

Well, there have been a few hiccups so far. The first was my ribbon cable between the ADC and AIM. The cable I had was rather old and decided to break off in the ADC, so I promptly ordered two new ones- an easy fix. Once they arrived, I plugged everything up, had the software ready to go, and turned...

Scott,

That looks like a fantastic guide! I'm surprised that I haven't seen that yet! Thank you very much for that link. I will update the post as I continue this attempt.

Help using Canberra 8701 ADC for MCA and *more* Neutron Issues

Hello all, I hope you are doing well in these strange times. I will put the most important part of this post first, so I don't accidentally provide you with a cure to insomnia or excessive confusion. To give you an idea of what I am trying to accomplish, I will first refer you to Carl's video on usi...

Re: NIM/He3 Frustrations

I have not tested the setup with a neutron source yet, but only a decent amount of radium, to which it did not respond at all. This morning I went and bought an o-scope, as no one near me had one. It is a Leader LBO-524 40 MHz. (I also repaired my LBO-508 20 MHz today.) Although it does not have a s...

Re: NIM/He3 Frustrations

Under normal circumstances, I would agree with you about that being an issue. However, it was given a restoration by Richard just a few years back, and seems to still be running well. (The thing has more 12ax7's than you can shake a stick at anyways...) I do wonder if you can somehow run the output ...

NIM/He3 Frustrations

Right now I pretty much have everything complete. I have made runs with H2 and more than adequate current/voltage. However, it isn't worth anyone's time to report on that without neutron measurements. Some problems have left me in the dark. My setup currently consists of the following ran out of a T...

Re: Luke Harrill's Trading Post

Thank you, Rich! Yes, the ceramic to metal seals on many of such capacitors are vacuum tight. Specifically the hermetically sealed, oil-filled ones with a steel case. My current feedthrough is made from a NOS one that was intended to go on a 60kv capacitor. I purchased it from Richard Hull a while b...

Re: Fusor Progress, Luke Harrill

My first light!! (on 2-18-19) I couldn't wait any longer to start testing, so I wired the XRT to 120 VAC, threw together a grid, pumped the system down, and turned on the variac. I initally used only the Welch to get down to ~20 microns before turning on the power. After a bit of cleaning, I was dow...
