Re: FAQ - NEUTRON SAFETY

<t>"So Boron is a total stopper, but is far more suitable as a thermal neut. stopper due to the monsterous B10 cross section for same."<br/> <br/> Richard,<br/> <br/> You also mentioned in you first post of this thread that Hydrogen has a large cross section, and is the reason why water absorbs (slo...

Re: more efficient fusor

<t>"A magnetic field would produce more ions close to the grid, which is exactly where you don’t want them. If possible, they should form farther out, so that the ions can fall though a higher potential difference. The concept would work if the deuterons were accelerated outwards, to a collision wit...

Re: more efficient fusor

<t>Yes, sorry about that.<br/> <br/> I was reffering to the ionized atom (deuteron).<br/> <br/> What do you think about the use of a static (DC supplied) magnetic coil type inner grid. Also to increase flux density at the inner grid, and eliminate flux between the inner grid and the shell, a core wi...

Re: FAQ- regulations

"After all, one can count the number of known operational amateur fusors in the US on two hands."

Do you know if there are any in operation in Canada?

Re: more efficient fusor

<t>It sounds like the answer is not known. Still I wounder why some of you tend toward a random result.<br/> <br/> Im still thinking of a method of extracting energy from the Fusor. In one of the posts (I believe it was "resonent nuclear battery"), there was talk of organizing the product particles ...

<t>Carter,<br/> <br/> "It seems we can throw matter into a black hole, and get random energy back out through hawking radiation."<br/> <br/> How do we know that the emitted radiation is in fact random? What is the evidence so far?<br/> <br/> I wonder about the nature of emitted particles from the D-...

Re: Fusor Voltage and Current - Relation to nearest Approach

What about the use of coatings?

If the inner grid were to be coated with glass, would that keep the electrons from popping off?

Re: Fusor Voltage and Current - Relation to nearest Approach

<t>Question:<br/> <br/> Can electrons production from the inner grid be supressed?<br/> <br/> Are some materials better suited for the inner grid, such that elcetron production is supressed or entirely eliminated?<br/> <br/> If the answer is yes, then another means of producing ions will need to be ...

Re: The Nature of Charge

<t>Another property, which has puzzled me, is the idea of an electron perfectly (very near to) orbiting a proton (nucleus).<br/> <br/> The analogies of comparing the orbit of a satellite around the earth, I find to be in adequate, as much effort is put into placing it there. Where as an electron see...
