Re: Scattering theory.

<t>Higher voltages HUGELY increase the probability of fusion event over scattering! The purpose of the discussion was to examine what that probability actually is, in absolute terms, in respect of input energy and whether that level of input energy is feasible. I've not seen this discussed before.<b...

Re: Scattering theory.

<t>I should've also said, in response to;<br/> <br/> "Without positive feedback I don't believe we can break even..."<br/> <br/> I rather suspect that you may be correct on this. Will my device give break-even, even if it doesn't have positive feedback? Probably not.<br/> <br/> It's not a panacea, n...

Re: Scattering theory.

<t>(Sorry for the word count. yes - 25 years of info to get out!)<br/> <br/> That's the very issue. Electrostatic fusion is not a 'containment' process, it's a beam process, and therefore it cannot 'contain' any energy produced. It is a 'one-hit' process and you have to be able to get that energy st...

Re: Voltmeter Calibration for Unfiltered Full-Wave Rectified DC

<t>I've come across the same issue in building power supplies and can provide an answer.<br/> <br/> I can certainly confirm Richard's comments - different meters have different ways of measuring AC, and so rectified DC can come out with different values. I tried this some time ago with a calibrated ...

Scattering theory.

<t>It seems to be a matter not often discussed in the detail it deserves, but the issue in all prospective energy producing fusion machines is collision efficiency. Just getting deuterium to go head-to-head with another deuterium is not enough. The coulomb scattering cross-section is much larger tha...

A first posting.

<t>Hello!<br/> <br/> I've been meaning to begin posting on the Fusor forum for some time now and I think this is as good a time as any, for the reasons that I will explain.<br/> <br/> I have been working on an idea for a novel plasma containment system for the last 25 years. I have tried to solicit ...
