Re: dynamic fusor patent, Salvatore Pais

Hello Dennis, I have a doubt about patents in USA. It seems possible to patent ideas. Do you confirm? This is not possible here (France and surely Europe). You need a "proof of concept". You cannot patent ideas. I read the patent. The author suggests that he is able to produce 1E6 teslas (with toroi...

Simulation of a fusion reactor using an electrons cloud confined in a magnetic bottle

Hello, For the ones interested by fusions in a magnetic bottle, I have issued a paper, for which abstracts and download addresses are: • In English The goal of this presentation (built around a simulation) is to describe a fusion reactor based on a magnetic bottle using magnetic confinement for elec...

Re: Need some help

Hello Steven, It would be more easy to understand with a diagram. All this is a bit fuzzy. I understand that you want to create a "Biconic cusp" (2 solenoides with an inverse current so magnetic fields in opposite direction). I suppose that you are going in some way not described, to inject a plasma...

Re: Fusor without inner grid?

Hello John, Thanks for the information. I agree that the diamagnetic field can be neglected, but the space charge is fondamental if your plasma is not neutral and I think it's the goal here to dissociate D2 molecules in ions. The space charge is an expanding pressure which is in equilibrium with the...

Re: Successful Completion and Operation of the Integrated High Vacuum Test Stand and Micro Propulsion Testing Chamber

Hello Michael, Thanks for your complete answer. It's not really for a Fusor but I study (by simulation) the following problem: when you inject electrons (to get a negative potential with the electrons cloud) in a set of magnetic mirrors (to avoid the "cusps" of the "biconic cusps" devices), if the e...

Re: Successful Completion and Operation of the Integrated High Vacuum Test Stand and Micro Propulsion Testing Chamber

Hello Michael, >It's really a shame there isn't more effort on pulsed fusors. Speaking of pulse, do you know what are, at the moment, the approximative minimum limits of time during which a pulse can be controlled (microsec? nanosec?), and precisely: * in case of a magnetic field pulse, what is the ...

Re: Columbus-I Pinch Tube Build

Thanks Rex and Mark for both links (abstract and 70 Mbytes PDF). It seems interesting and a lot to read.

Re: Columbus-I Pinch Tube Build

Mark,

>I cant locate a non-pay link to the document and the pdf file size exceeds the limits of the forum.
Anyway thanks. It is not that important. If, possibly, you have some abstract (of limited size), here is my email: f6cte at free.fr

Re: Columbus-I Pinch Tube Build

Hello Mark,

Have you a WEB link about a description of this pinch tube device, at least to understand the posts.

Thanks
Patrick
