A Virtual cathode for the sceptical

<t>Richard...<br/> The topic of detection of a virtual cathode in an IEC device using non-intrusive techniques as there would be in the case of a langmuir probe was discussed at the 2001 International Sherwood Fusion Theory Conference in Santa Fe, NM on April2-4,2001 by a Mr. Hiromu Momota...then a ...

Re: Breast Implant Optical Coupling Medium

<t>As scientists, we know that solutions to problems can appear from the strangest places, BUT....<br/> be careful...I know a woman who bought some of those things and now she doesn't want to act right.<br/> The same just might be true for your detector. If it doesn't act right, you'll know why....<...

Lithium Detection

If I'm not mistaken, He4 (1.7MeV) and He3 (2.3 MeV) can fuse to form Li6 and a proton.
Shouldn't this be detectable with an RGA if pressures are low enough, say in the 10-11 torr range...?
Is its half life even long enough to detect....?

So many roads to neutron detection...

<t>I have been involved for quite some time in trying to detect my neutrons with all types of crystal and plastic scintillation materials coupled to a PMT. After growing tired of fighting with the problem of gammas mixed in with my neuts, and rebuilding a mish-mash of secondhand equipment, I am just...
