Re: Proposal of a progressive thermalization fusion reactor which mechanical gain is ≥18

Hello Joe, >I downloaded your Multiplasma simulator and wondered if you could elaborate on the method you used to simulate particle motion. Did you use a PIC approach? I have not used specific approach or method (I did not know that there were different approaches). My "method" is the following: I c...

Proposal of a progressive thermalization fusion reactor which mechanical gain is ≥18

Proposal of a progressive thermalization fusion reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with a mechanical gain superior or equal to 18 Hello to all, In a previous paper, I supposed that beams could avoid thermalization thanks to the "Corkscrew" magnetic device, but it appears that this device can't...

Re: New Method of Magnetic Confinement that has Received Some Interest from DARPA

Hello Pierre, >I have a buddy that is currently working on a stellarator being built here in the states, at Wisconsin, I may have to reach out to him and ask that question. If I can get a straight answer on that, I will let you know. Thanks to forward the question. It could be of interest to know wh...

Re: New Method of Magnetic Confinement that has Received Some Interest from DARPA

Hello Pierre, Thanks for the way to patent a concept and all the information and documents about magnetic reconnection (problem that I ignored until yesterday☺). It seems to apply to the sun, and to astronomical phenomena. I agree that Stellarators are, a priori, a better solution than tokamaks. How...

Re: New Method of Magnetic Confinement that has Received Some Interest from DARPA

Hello Pierre, I read your interesting paper "The nuclear...(NESAR)". It's a good idea to introduce a moment of force on particles, to make them turn. By this way, you will probably reduce the rate of particles losses through the cusps, which will increase the confinement time. However it will be, in...

Re: Electroacoustic resonance and fusion

Yes, "Acoustically driven Magnetized Target Fusion" seems a promising way for fusion. See https://generalfusion.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Laberge-2007-An-Acoustically-Driven-Magnetized-Target-Fusion-Reactor.pdf However it is not used an acoustic resonance because variation of pressure would be ...

Re: Proposal of a new type of colliding beam fusion reactor which electrical gain is superior to 1

Hello, To finish with this subject, here are my final observations (deducted from simulations): * to transform radial speed in axial speed of a beam with particles having different characteristics(speed and position), the magnetic corkscrew is not the solution as it can strongly reduce or increase t...

Re: Proposal of a new type of colliding beam fusion reactor which electrical gain is superior to 1

Hello, This paper had a big weakness, i.e. I supposed that the magnetic corkscrew device will permit to keep the radial characteristics of the beam, based on the patent . It's a common problem for colliding beam fusion reactors, i.e to prevent the beam to thermalize (even at a certain energy cost). ...

Re: A Thought Experiment on Ideal Conditions

Thanks for the explanations. >in a final system the losses can be minimized from the electron beams by slowing and recollecting the electrons after they pass the centre. However, due to successive yields, you will recover perhaps 1/3 of the primary energy as a maximum. It seems difficult to do bette...

Re: A Thought Experiment on Ideal Conditions

Hello, Thanks for the interesting document. I looked at your main diagram and I hope that I undestood the principle. It seems possible to create an electrons cloud in the A zone but at a price of an enormous electrons injection power. Each electron is injected with a yield of 0.5 for a good ion gun ...
