mounting CF components

I was always looking for a usable and flexible method to mount the new components of my ion-source. The issue was that it has be isolated and it has to be removable (so welding was not a good idea). During the last few weeks I constructed a small metal-part, went to one of my customers to let it cut...

Re: FICS II Planning and construction

Hi Steven! Just viewed your Video. Congrats to your SCADA software with Labview! It seems to work perfectly. How did you remote controll your Glassmann? Using a variable Input or serial communication? My Turbo pump Controller also has a serial connection - but as it is RS 485, it's a little more tim...

Re: Tubbs Beam-on-Target Effort [Neuts/Pics/Tips]

Robert, I saw you video and some of the pictures of your ion-source. I have a similar design but want to use a RF-source which is almost DIY. I bought a 1,0 kW SSPA. For connecting the HF-coil to this PA I also selected the MFJ-962D. But when browsing through your video, I saw that you opend up the ...

Re: FICS II Planning and construction

Andrew,

did you also find a USB to fiber converter? The ones I found where extremly expensive (> 2.000 $)
This would be even easier to connect a NI USB-DAQ which is on high voltage potential to a PC outside the Faraday cage ...

BR,
Werner

Re: FICS II Planning and construction

Steven, remembering your entry “Problems to be solved in FICS-II” I have two suggestions for you: Regarding the floating MFC: What about using a KF or CF insulators between your FICS and the MFC? I recently found such a device which is always used in professional ion sources: https://www.vacom.de/en...

Re: ion source doesn't work

Did you try to talk to Mr. Rapp? Maybe he has an idea? By the way: I ordered a very interesting book regarding Ion Sources. It should arrive in 3-4 weeks in my local bookshop. If I find something after browsing through, I will tell you : http://www.amazon.com/The-Physics-Technology-Ion-Sources/dp/35...

Re: Theoretical Size Limit of Fusor?

… to be precise: I’m talking about turbo pumps reaching 10e-8 mbar or better. I know that’s not normal fusor pressure regime, but for tokamaks that’s fine and a good situation to start.
