Re: Turkey Day Demo Fusor

Thanks, I'll remember that, as I was planning to use an old pressure cooker as the vacuum chamber for my fusor. Anything else?

Turkey Day Demo Fusor

<t>This year I am going to try to build a one day demo fusor for Thanksgiving. No more stuffing my face with pie (well, I may still do that) just good ol' work in the name of science. Is there any tips anyone has that could make this construction any easier?<br/> <br/> Thanks and have fun eating mas...

Re: Welding

Thanks for advice, is there anything else to keep in mind while building the vacuum chamber?

Re: Supercooled Tritium

<t>Actually, its funny that you mention that. One of the main problems that they had with producing Bose-Einstein condensate is that one of the methods that they were using (magnetic cooling) caused the atoms to get so close that they fused and caused the temperatures to rise, making it difficult to...

Re: Vacuum chamber

Thank you for your quick reply, so what do you do about the neutron radiation? just use the rule of square and stand further back from the fusor, or use shielding of an element that absorbs neutrons? I heard somewhere that water mixed with borox will do the trick, is this accurate?

Vacuum chamber

How thick must the walls of your vacuum chamber be if you wish to do fusion within it. How thick do the need to be to be safe when operating at energies of 10-20Kv? 20-50Kv?
Thanks for the help

Vacuum pump

How low of a pressure does your vacuum pump need to be able to achieve to be able to get fusion from your reactor? At what point is there too much regular air to make D-D fusion possible.

Thank you for your help

Bubble Dosimeter

Does anyone know a good place to get bubble dosimeters through? I need a cheap way of neutron detection and this seams to be the best answer.

Re: Welding

So what your saying is that the generic arc welding creates cracks an impurities so that a vacuum cannot be formed? If so then I will find someone qualified to do TiG welding and build the camber that way.

I also took your advice and changed my username.

Re: Power Supply

The capacitors used are 20Kv ceramic capacitors, which I can get for a little over $40. Also, the transformer used in my revised version is a 10Kv neon sign transformer.

Thank you for speedy reply
