Re: Neutron Club Application - Eduardo Machado & Cristiano Machado

Mr. Rowley, Thank you for your comments, and for your work with the precipitator! The dosimeter is 9 months old.

We made a lot of research, a demo fusor, that almost exploded, and finally now we have a complete fusor, doing fusion. My r...

Re: My progress II

Hello Mr. Rowley, Thank you very much for your suggestions. I will work on flashover protection. About the grid, this shape was easier for me to build, we used stainless steel wires and I couldn't make a good spherical grid. I will try again and see if I can get a different shape. Regards, Eduardo
