Re: Pinch plasmas

Mark, hows the z pinch going. Is 7kv 11uf enough for fusion.

Re: Would this work for a first time fuser

Steven
Forgot about that, it wouldn't be a 100% sphere, maybe adding on the outerside a postive sphere or wire grid.

Cheers

Re: Would this work for a first time fuser

<t>I will be building this, as I can't afford or have the skills for a vacuum setup.<br/> I've edited my post to more realistic voltages. The idea wasn't about making radioactive argon, so much as to use the argon to compress the D in a fluid motion field, when as the argon heats up, should exponent...

Would this work for a first time fuser

<t>Would this work for a first time fuser. The idea is to fully ionize argon and Deuterium the argon gets attracted to the shell more and the columb force of full strip argon over <10cm will force the Deuterium ions to within 25pm of each other. As the Deuterium fuses it should send neutrons into ar...

Re: FAQ - X-ray radiation!!

<r>2. Always wear a 100-200 mrem pen dosimeter! Do not use the common, yellow 100r Civil defense dosimeter<br/> <br/> would this be a good geiger counter <URL url="http://www.dosimeter4you.com/geiger-counter-radiation-detector-soeks-defender-p-93.html?gclid=CImbnvf2_rMCFal7QgodVxcAkA"><LINK_TEXT tex...

Re: Creating a neutron source

<t>Carl the idea is to send a spark into tungsten to release a neutron or proton. What I understand is a xray will come off. They only data I could find that might make a proton would be if its at 1Mev and the xray will break down to proton and anti proton. The angle is to deflect xray at 90degrees,...

Re: Creating a neutron source

<t>I've been experimenting with a ignition coil, and yes discharge a homemade cap throught both hands....lesson learned build it then stand away when you turn the power on, and use one hand.<br/> <br/> To move forward I need to use more voltages, i'm also learning stuff from 4hv.org, read all genera...

Re: Creating a neutron source

Just working on the caps, should allow rapid fire, might at later stage get more cw stages.

Re: Creating a neutron source

I'm in the process of building a marx generator to test this out. The only measuring equipment I've got is a multimeter.... if I ground the negative terminal and put the positive in the proton stream, what amount of voltage could I expect , F=mv2 , E = F/q
