Re: A first posting.

<t>Hi Chris,<br/> <br/> First off, welcome to the boards. I myself have only begun posting in the last few months, but like you, have been lurking for some time.<br/> <br/> One thing I've noticed through some of the posts like yours that I have read are ones where the general premise of the post is ...

Finding the proper HV feedthrough

<r>Hi All,<br/> <br/> Still gathering parts for my fusor, should have everything together by the middle of the summer.<br/> <br/> I am having trouble finding a proper HV feedthrough though. The vacuum chamber I'm having built by the school's machine shop will have a 4.5" Conflat Flange at the top of...

Paschen Curves (Breakdown Voltage vs. Pressure) of Deuterium and Argon

<t>Hi All,<br/> <br/> Wasn't sure which forum to post this in, but figured this was probably the best place.<br/> <br/> For my demo experiment for my electrical engineering capstone project, I'm just running a glow discharge of argon in a vacuum setup used for metal evaporation. Eventual final proje...

Re: Question Regarding HV DC PSU

<t>Thanks for the further info Wilfried. <br/> <br/> As to the question of why I intend to build a fusor? Well, I'm an electrical engineering student at the George Washington University. We're required to complete a 3 semester long senior design project/course. Most students get away with designing ...

Re: Question Regarding HV DC PSU

<t>Again, thank you all for the input. <br/> <br/> Richard - Trust me, the detection requirement has been thrown on me plenty, I know its very important. I'm going to be using a BF3 tube from Nwood labs to do the neutron detection (still working out the actual counter). My professors have also asked...

Re: Question Regarding HV DC PSU

<r>Hi Carl,<br/> <br/> Thanks for the quick reply. Just finished an electromagnetics midterm, so my brain is a little shot at the moment. <br/> <br/> Can you do me a favor and take a look at this Glassman spec sheet. Its the supply I'm considering using. <URL url="http://www.glassmanhv.com/PDFs/EW_S...
