Re: FAQ - Why no neutrons exit atoms in natural decay processes

I see your point Richard, but rather then say there are no neutrons from natural decay. your saying there are no significant natural sources of neutrons, and no natural sources that could be used for experimental purposes.

Voltage and current - what are the lower/upper/ideal limits?

<t>as a primer I quote from a post of Richard's,<br/> <br/> "Voltage changes and current changes in any given device will have easily understood functions. More voltage = More probablitiy of fusion...to a point...easily ploted on a already extant cross sectional curve. More current = More ions that ...

Re: FAQ - Why no neutrons exit atoms in natural decay processes

<t>Frank we are talking about "natural atomic decay" not fusion in this thread. Your question makes me question if your reading the threads and if you have any idea of what deuterium is. (I question it, I'm not convinced.... yet)<br/> <br/> ____<br/> Richard, I agree with John natural spontainous fi...

Re: EXP: Fusor Efficiency Tests

<t>Very nice experiment, this is the kind of testing I would like to be doing with my fusor (I would like to see everyone try experiments like this with their fusors). someday I'll have the time to work on those tests. Again nice work and thanks for sharing.<br/> <br/> It would be nice to see this e...

Re: EXP: Ion Beam Focusing by a Loop Electrode - linear fusor in star mode

<t>Excellent experiment that I would call a linear fusor, I think this easily suggests a linear design of a fusor is possible based on the "Electrode port lensing effect" Dave mentioned. (consider a linear fusor as a singlur cross section of a spherical fusor, so that the center Electrode is two neg...

Re: New lens tech increases focusing of EM beam 10x.

<t>I fall inline with Richard's Gravity boots thinking, most engineering ideas never translate to fusion even when they are designed for fusion. <br/> <br/> I for one would like Fusion to become a reality but that is still far off. We need radical new ideas to increase fusion efficency by factors of...

Re: Bake out

<t>UHV Bake out will provide a cleaner vacuum then just pumping with; ion, diffusion, or turbo pumps. The bake method can also be used to "clean up" a dirty system, a new system, or a recently opened system; to speed up the process of getting back to a clean Vacuum.<br/> <br/> Baking a UHV system (2...

Re: useful information in cylindrical fusor article

<t>I disagree, there is some new stuff burried in this article.<br/> <br/> 1) reference to Fusors as Radially convergent beam fusion (RCBF) Rather then Inertial electrostatic confinement (often abbreviated as IEC)<br/> <br/> 2) use of a cusp magnetic field ion source. By applying the cusp magnetic f...

Re: New lens tech increases focusing of EM beam 10x.

After reading about these "plate" lenses, they would likely only work on electromagnetic feilds. Ion focusing would be in a different league. I think this may have possible aplications in laser driven IEC fusion.

Re: Q: Dielectric strength

<t>Interesting concept, and good multiple use of the oil.<br/> <br/> I was under the impression that fast or slow neutrons could cause the moleculer bonds in oils to be seperated, resulting in oil deteriation over time. I think that the cross section for breaking a bond in an oil molecule might be d...
