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

If you want to (...) detect D+T fusion reactions (...). The same detection methods for D+D will work for D+T, neutron moderators are a wonderful thing for activation detectors. Ok. All D-D fusion detection methods by neutron detection, that are mentioned in FAQ -Update- Neutron detection methods (2...

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

As you guys seem to think over fusors in very predefined railway lines, I have worked out a deuterium-tritium fusion process now, that uses lithium fission as a tritium source. Can I use any neutron detector mentioned above for proving a deuterium-tritium fusion process, although tritium has a radio...

Beam on Pd-D-Li Target Fusor

Based on the previous " Beam on Solid State Fusor " design I have worked out a new more sophicticated design, now. It is similar, but the remarkable significant diffence is, that the target, which gets bombarded with deuterium ions, is out Palladium-Lithium alloy now. Small alloy test charges are us...

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

First off, no one except government grade labs can use tritium - that is a radioactive gas. Reaction #2 is the only one we can do, (D-D). You are right, as far no lithium is fissioned in the process, which would produce tritium. However, I have got a " Beam on Target Fusion Design ", which would th...

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

First of all I did recognize, that there are a lot detectors mentioned in this subforum. However, I do not know, which one to choose and why. The choose of the right detector seems to be so complicated, because following German wikipedia not 1 but 4 nuclear fusion reaction can occur at the same time...

Overview of D-D and D-T Fusion Detectors

Hello! I am new in the forum and do not know much about, how to detect (and proof) a fusion process, yet. Could "any"one more experienced give me an overview of the methods/ types of detectors, that are frequently used to detect a nuclear fusion, respectively one of its (side) products? I am interes...

Re: LENR / Solid State Fusor

Thanks for your valuable contributions. I really googled "beam on target fusion" and found these cross section graphs cross_sections.jpg (Source: https://www.quora.com/What-is-beam-target-fusion) My Questions to these cross-sections: What does a cross section of 4! in Deuterium-Tritium beam-target-f...

googled: 10% heavier.
To be precise 1.107 g mL−1 (density of D2O) / 0,9982067 g·cm−3 (density of H2O), both at 20°C.

For precise density measurements use a picnometer.
Thanks for the tip. Picnometer at Ebay about 20 EUR (10 ml Size).

Re: LENR / Solid State Fusor

Spoken otherwise: The only main difference between my LENR / Solid State Fusor approach and the A Farnsworth–Hirsch fusor is that the accelerated deuterium-ion is not targeted against another plasma-deuterium ion but a palladium-deuterid-ligand, instead (which is hoped to require less accelerated de...

Re: How to test the quality of heavy water (D2O)?

So, if I've understood you right, for a rough test I would weight e.g. 10ml of heavy water in a volume measuring cylinder on a high precision weighting scale. Just one question to that. D2O is how much heavier than H20, exactly? If I am fortunate to posess an infrared spectrometer, I will use this o...
