SmCo Grid for Deuteron Deflection

Greetings, In the hopes of reducing the amount of collisions that occur between my grid and the incoming deuterons, I have been searching fusor.net and other sites for potential manners to optimize grid transparency and deflect 40 keV deuterons. After doing so, I came across a few sources, one of wh...

Re: Theoretical liquid-grid fusion reactor

Thank you, I now understand its flaws and will adjust from there. The purpose of this proposition was to investigate potential options for an extension of my Science Fair project. Basically, the experiment which I am performing assesses a certain aspect of the Hirsch-Farnsworth Fusor (specifically, ...

Re: Theoretical liquid-grid fusion reactor

Greetings Mr. Hull, My primary objective was to consider a hybrid of Li-6 + neutron fission (using neutrons from fusion), D+T fusion by using the H-3 produced by Li-6 fission, and the typical D+D fusion caused by the deuterons striking each other whilst trying to reach the liquid grid. Also, the use...

Theoretical liquid-grid fusion reactor

Greetings, I was looking at the design for a fusor and the issues confronting inner grid deformation and the problems concerning deuteron loss to a high skew-per-pass ratio with the inner grid. However, I will forewarn all who read this that what I am about to propose may be a stupid idea and is by ...

What type of rectifier did you use to get the power to DC?

Re: #5 FAQ - Grounding in a fusor system

In order to attach this to the outlet to ground the high voltage, could I take a three-pronged plug and remove the neutral and live prongs and then plug it into the outlet?

Re: Don't Build This HV Feedthrough

Since I have one of these feedthroughs that also is comprised of a 1/4" OD alumina tube, could I layer the current tube with alumina ceramics in order to get the diameter up to 3/4" without having to buy a new tube? I am also only running about 30 kV DC through the feedthrough and am planning to ins...
