Re: Canal Ray pictures

But it is not possible to generate 12 MeV protons by a canal ray tube, or is it?

Re: Beam on Pd-D-Li Target Fusor

Thanks for the oscilloscope tip, Vince! How did you cut the tube exactly? John, ion beam distraction by electric field is not required, here. I wanted to use the null-posiition of the beam. You might be right this way, that the maximum ion acceleration by the default voltage of the scope might be to...

Re: Canal Ray pictures

In Thomas Rapp's canal ray accelerator experiment either the target and also the detector are place within the canal ray tube. Would it be possible to design a canal ray tube with an beryllium window at the end, so that the ion-beam would be delivered outside the canal ray tube (and thus ion beam ge...

Re: Canal Ray pictures

As canal ray tubes can be used to produce ion guns, I am interested in What are typical keV speeds of the ion? Are there also smaller canal ray tubes, especially for assembling in an experiment? The only experimental canal ray tube I have seen on ebay so far is this one: Ebay Canal Ray Tube ebay_exp...

Re: Overview of D-D and D-T Fusion Detectors

Thanks Richard. To be frank I was thinking about something much more simple than a passivated implanted planar silicon detector. As my fusor is not a plasma fusor but a beam on target design (without or very little plasma in the fusion chamber), I was thinking about simply using a Geiger-Müller-coun...

Why isn't it possible to place a - high voltage resistant - alternative (non-neutron-)detector within the fusion chamber?

Re: Finished PhD, now a postdoc at MIT

Congratulations to your PhD! Maybe I am trying to read your thesis, if it is not mathemtically too sophisticated for me. I am only an applied statictician. A little joke regarding your photo: I really didn't know, that physicists are willing to do so much arduous research work only to wear such adva...

Wiki

Hello Admins! This wiki thread goes back to the threat http://www.fusor.net/board/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=12503, where the idea of a wiki for fusor.net has been initialized, first. As Richard has told so far, that he wouldn't mind about a wiki under certain further to specify conditions, I have started...

Re: Beam on Pd-D-Li Target Fusor

The television tube is set under vaccuum. Due to the vaccum, some of the deuterium in the palladium electrode evaporades into the tube. A deuterium plasma is generated in the tube. From the deuterium plasma the tube's beam unit starts to produce a deuterium-ion beam. You are absolutely right. Only ...

Re: Beam on Pd-D-Li Target Fusor

As there are no feedbacks to the design till 2 days now, I want to disclose the ideas behind it. Supposed advantages: Beam on target fusion design is a well probed fusion design (Compare Google Scholar: beam on target deuterium fusion ) Litium fission generates small amounts of tritium, that has the...
