Re: Archived - The Five Minute Fusor

EYES DON'T GROW BACK.....BE CAREFUL...

The longer setting epoxies are easier to mix....have a longer working time.....and, once you finished, can be warmed to obtain a faster 'cure time'....fast epoxiies are (generally) not as good as the slower ones.

Re: Cold fusion hypothesis: Capacitance

<t>Well, Chris, For example, Take electro-etching and electro-polishing for example. Subject to certain other operating parameters, If you turn on an electrolytic cell, and increase the voltage up from zero, current rises with voltage, and electro-etching occurs at the anode. If you continue to incr...

Re: Energy efficient proton production?

<t>Thankyou for your comments, Carl. <br/> <br/> Surely if the hydrogen is introduced into the region that feels the extraction fields, and ionized upon entry, all will be extracted?<br/> <br/> I've not yet done the maths, as there is no point until you can estimate proposed losses, but , if my memo...

Re: Energy efficient proton production?

<t>I may be missing the point here, but, Chris, what happens to the ions that are filtered out...Where do they go, and what do they do if you don't 'trap' them. They would need o be removed somehow, surely? ...I appreciate that 're-cycling' them could prove to be less efficient than just removing th...

Re: Energy efficient proton production?

Unless, of course, I have three ionizers......arranged so that any hydrogen molecules that try to leak past get ionized and 'pulled back' to where they can be filtered. If I can design this system, it should (eventually) convert all hydrogen fed into it into protons.

Re: Energy efficient proton production?

<t>So I then presumably have to use a Penning trap to 'store' the H2 ions?<br/> <br/> Or can I trap them with a cathode? <br/> <br/> I imagine I can't trap them by 'sputtering', in the usual sense, due to the fact that the H2 ions would combine with electrons from the cathode, and I'd end up with hy...

Energy efficient proton production?

<t>Firstly, I hope I've managed to post this question in the correct forum now.<br/> <br/> Secondly, It would seem that ALL the big synchrocyclotrons use RF/magnetron sources for proton beams, but even they only achieve about 13% efficiency producing protons from hydrogen.<br/> <br/> Thirdly, while ...

Re: General discussion of Solid State Ion Accelerator

<t>"I reject this view and hold to a photon enters the cable and exits (with some loss mechanisms). This becomes an odd idea, a mass enters another mass and travels for long distances. It is almost counter-intuitive."<br/> <br/> If you compare this will electrons in a wire...Just a thought here...wh...

Re: Cold fusion hypothesis: Capacitance

<t>"Electrolytic D2 loading cells are conductive, being an electrolytic cell and not capacitive in any sense of the word. "<br/> <br/> Not so...An electrolytic cell works like a 'leaky' capacitor.<br/> <br/> (By the way, this thread seems to be answering some questions I've been working on for years...
