Re: Feasibility of Making a Fusor for a Senior Project?

<t>It'll work well as a senior project if you're dedicated. It will of course require a significant time investment in research, but it shouldn't be too big to tackle. While I think the probability of a fusion powered spacecraft is rather remote, the project could nonetheless show some of the concep...

Re: First Light and Plasma Photos

<t>Chris, I've attached a basic schematic of the multiplier setup. It's bad enough to make any EE cringe, but I think it gets the idea across. You may be right that the output voltage is lower than I originally thought. The panel meter I was using started displaying ridiculous readings yesterday, an...

First Light and Plasma Photos

<t> Hello all- I've been a member lurking here for a year or so, though I haven't been posting much. I'm a high school student located in Seattle, Washington with a love for amateur science. I've undertaken a fusor project as a way to experiment with the basics of electrical engineering and high ene...

Re: FAQ: Quick fusion factoids

Carl Greninger and Northwest Nuclear Consortium (nwnc.us.com) have a belljar fusor that is well documented to produce neutrons. It's far from ideal, but it does fuse reliably.

Pulsar Power Supply?

<r>Has anyone heard of a "Pulsar FPV" HVPS? I stumbled across this on ebay and I've found next to no information on it other than what is in the advertizement. It appears to be 60kV, but doesn't seem to list a current rating. <br/> <br/> Auction: <URL url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pulsar-FRP-Controll...
