Re: Who are the kooks in fusion?

The difference between 'cold' and 'real' hot fusion is that hot fusion is a known physical phenomena.

If 'cold fusion' was real, we would see it in nature. We don't. It's not real. It is a scam. Period.

Re: For a good laugh from the University of Washington

I disagree with the condescension towards this paper. It is highly relevant and probes whether the experimental end-point for tokamak and its ilk is a scientific or a practical one. I am all aboard with tokamak as an ongoing science project, but shudder when people suggest it is now 'an engineering ...

Re: fuse iron atom with proton

As John has said, what are you trying to do here that is 'novel'? Activation of iron is known... and...?

As you have not stated your experimental objective, it is a mystery as to why you are proposing this 'experiment'.

Re: A new topology for building a low-cost DIY HV power supp

Unfortunately, I can imagine a time when CCFL inverters will, indeed, no longer be available. I guess wiltech have moved over to LEDs only. For now you can still get CCFL inverters for 'old' computer monitors, but these are moving to LEDs too, so that supply will die out. see... http://www.ebay.co.u...

Re: Cleaning the Chamber 3

Water is, itself, a good solvent for many things. There is no issue with using 70% IPA and then doing a plasma clean. You should want to do a plasma clean anyway, it will break down all of those solvents, and any other greasy/oily droplets that might've found their way onto surfaces, and is a standa...

To be clear, insulators for what purpose?

No, it is not. But you can use multiple cheap neon modules like this:-

Re: Book on IEC fusion

No prob. I can understand a reluctance to use the php search function, it is pretty useless and often misses the most relevant posts. But do try it at least... sometimes it works!!

Re: Book on IEC fusion

You need to improve your searching skills.

I typed in 'miley book' in the search engine and the next 4 posts listed after yours showed the same book.

Re: ISO Diffusion Pump Flange

Looks OK to me - of course those photo/diagram images show a generalised view (in fact, they show the reverse to each other of the ends), whereas yours would be more like a tube with two different endings, one ISO one CF. You get these clamp things with ISO, you can see one in the photo with the siz...
