Re: Photon triggered Fusion

Thanks for the reply. It would be interesting to compare pros and cons of this method with an ordinary fusion. My instinct is telling me that the efficiency is not low at all since hydrogen is loaded in the lattice under a certain pressure. Imagine that suddenly helium will occur in the lattice from...

Re: Photon triggered Fusion

Thank you very much. I am asking, because NASA released few papers where this phenomenon is utilized. And they are actually successfull so that in a few minutes there is clearly detectable radiation from produced tritium. Yes, I know that X-ray production efficiency is very poor, usually just 1%. Bu...

Re: Photon triggered Fusion

Thanks, I will check the FAQ.
For me getting 100keV photons is very easy. You just need X-ray tube and a proper power supply and eventually a shielding. Or off the shelf device for this purpose.
I just dont want to say word "x-rays", since energetic photons could be also a gamma rays.

Photon triggered Fusion

I would like to ask what do you think about this effort? Can it be more efficient than fusion mediated by accelerated ions? For example we have TiD2 target parallely with TiD2 ion source. We will heat up the ion source to free some deuterium. Then these molecules/atoms will be irradiated with photon...

Simple DD fusor

Dear readers, I am trying to build very simple fusor based on the Neutristor device . It would be just little bit bigger. What I am very concerned is Ion Source. I understand its operation, but since there are many ways how to obtain ions, I am not sure what design can be sufficient. I know that ide...
