Re: Swagelok SS-SS4 Thread Count

Their website has a lot of good stuff swagelok.com/en

There are a lot of subspecs for the SS-SS4 series of components, here's one:

Re: Australian Breakthrough Fusion (Duh, Chirp Lasers)

I think you are talking about Dr. Moses's report from 2011. He moved the goalposts, ignoring the energy required to charge up their 192 Nd amplifiers, and focussing (pun intended) on only the energy absorbed into the holhram, compared to the energy they measured coming out. In this case Moses claime...

Re: Australian Breakthrough Fusion (Duh, Chirp Lasers)

To begin, CO2 Laser wavelength is 10,600 nm, Nd:YAG is 1064 nm. A SHG crystal can be used to double Nd:YAG to 532nm. A THG crystal can triple the frequency to 354.7 nm. This is the configuration used at NIF, in 192 amplifiers with Neodymium crystals the size of microwave ovens. It really was an impr...

Re: Australian Breakthrough Fusion (Duh, Chirp Lasers)

Interesting responses... When I was in college, our Director was hooked up with the Lab Manager at Los Alamos. He would take a box truck out to New Mexico every January, and fill it up with the lab hardware that LANL was discarding from the previously ended projects, then we would sort through it to...

Re: DallasMakerSpace Fusion Project

Dennis and Mark, Thanks for your feedback, more information is always better. Richard Hull's original observation that we are using a filter vessel to carry out initial experiments is inherently perilous, is very true, but only when Star Mode is actualized. Our initial experiments involved lower vol...

Re: DallasMakerSpace Fusion Project

Good catch, Rich! Yes, the thing we built is an Electrolyzer, as it is mentioned on the https://dallasmakerspace.org/wiki/Fusor (Science Comm. server). In the post I put on fusor.net, it appears as "hydrolyzer"; I have no explanation... We 3D printed a framework, then used conventional lab glassware...

DallasMakerSpace Fusion Project

DallasMakerSpace is a 501(c)3 cooperative consortium of Artists, Engineers, and Makers from the N Texas area. The Science Committee of dallasmakerspace.org conceived to build and operate a Farnsworth-Hirsch Fusor. We began in earnest last December, and have acquired many of the parts and technology ...

Bubble Tech neutron detector

We need a Bubble Tech neutron dosimeter to test our fusor.

If you have one to sell, please answer with a price.

Thanks!

Australian Breakthrough Fusion (Duh, Chirp Lasers)

I've been reading the boards for a while, and have been entranced by gunning and the sort. But, it appears that the Aussies have leapfrogged any tech we have presented. Their approach to Boron-11 Fusion is brilliant and seemingly immaculate. This begs for re-creation and augmentation. We have a 1400...

Dallas Maker Space setup progresses

We're approaching our first data runs. The setup progresses. We're electrolyzing water for Hydrogen, to vacuum test, set pressure equilibrium, then strike a plasma.
