Re: throttle valve

If you are NOT looking for high quality, high percision, automated control of the vacuum, a (non-leaking) ball valve will work just fine.

Re: Thinking can range from dangerous to insightful

<t>Nuetrino production is not out of the amatuer fusionists releam of possiblity.<br/> <br/> With a large nuetron flux hitting a metal target, isotopes are bound to be produced, these isotopes can decay via beta decay and thus produce nuetrinos. The right choice of a target would make this fesible, ...

Re: Quick and Dirty diff pumped system

<t>Yes, you can do that, but be prepared to wait a long time between pump downs.<br/> <br/> I would suggest, having valve between each component on your vacuum system. This way, if any one part goes wrong you are not putting the system in danger, or more importantly yourself into danger. Venting a h...

Re: WHY ELECTRONS DON'T RADIATE IN ORBITS

<t>I quote from your earlier post: "... For an electron in an atom, the allowed energy states correspond to a standing wave wrapped around the nucleus. Even this is not the whole story with QM though. ..."<br/> <br/> Hence, my statement that an electron's wave function is three dimensional and not t...

Re: WHY ELECTRONS DON'T RADIATE IN ORBITS

<t>H-bar = Plank's constant divided by 2 pi<br/> <br/> The wave function of the electron is NOT wrapped around the proton in a linear orbit. It is three dimensional, and actually passes through the proton.<br/> <br/> The Pauli exculsion principle is an observation, but is backed experimental with nu...

Re: Watch that electron beam!!!!!

<t>It seems to me that this problem would be best solved by making a cylindrical fusor with two solenoids between the walls of equal magnetic strength and opposite polarity, one being slightly larger than the other so as to "pivot" the electrons back to the inside.<br/> <br/> However, if you do use ...

Re: Grid Losses

<t>If you are speaking of a sphereical fusor: let me just tell you that there is not such thing as sphereically symetrical magnet field lines.<br/> <br/> If you are thinking of a cylindrical fusor, and using the inner cathode as a electromagnet, with the field lines directed in the axial direction: ...

Re: Thinking can range from dangerous to insightful

It does take more energy to create a muon that is released by ONE duetron fusion event, BUT a muon can catalyze many fusion events. If I remember correctly the break even point with 100% efficiency is 200 fusion events, but a realistic estimate of efficiency requires 1000 fusion events.
