Re: Gadolinium Flux Engine

<t>Basically it is supposed to convert a neutron flux into mechanical energy.<br/> <br/> The flux heats the Gadolinium, which losses it's magnetic properties at ~68deg. and falls from the magnet.<br/> <br/> The Gadolinium cools and regains its magnetic properties and pulls back up to the magnet.<br/...

Gadolinium Flux Engine

Here is another wing nut idea of a flux engine. I was inspired by the post of Tim Raney's Tesla thermoelectric motor.

It is driven in the same manner with a temperature differential using the curie point of Gadolinium.

FAQ Fusor losses (2)

<r>Here is a list representing various types of losses found in a fusor. <br/> <br/> Looking at loss relative to input wattage vs. fusion wattage per second (during typical operation). This includes none of the losses of preliminary power supplies, transformers etc. Loss is any energy escaping the d...

Re: Cold fusion back in the news

<t>The Galileo Project is the ongoing effort towards reproducing results. The group could be way ahead in safe, energy producing nuclear reactions.<br/> <br/> Now, how it actually works is another thing. Many researchers are considering a palladium lattice is used to partition a Helmholtz type reson...

Re: Ignition is a whole new ball game.

<t>Don,<br/> <br/> The math plugs into: de Broglie equation relating the frequency of a particle to kinetic energy. As you have mentioned there are a whole host of resonances, which muddy up the math. The proton frequency makes this difficult in my view. <br/> <br/> If I were looking at a product si...

Re: Ignition is a whole new ball game.

<t>Don, <br/> <br/> IMO the problem with an EM drain is: the energy is needed to shorten the barrier/freq. (see ill.). I have been trying to find a low voltage route to D+D fusion but this obstacle remains.<br/> <br/> The barrier needs to be compressed, acceleration through 10,000-20,000V seems to b...

Re: Electron speed

I agree, charge flows. The way I see it electrons still flow in a dc current. Electron drift may be slow in typical conductors, but in my book they still move. I'm open to evidence that proves otherwise.
