Re: Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium

<t>Thank you Richard (Hull) for pointing up the obvious...<br/> that for activation to occur the neutrons must be moderated. All of Mr Ritter's work assumes that the inner vacuum wall would be hot due to fast neutrons . <br/> The bulk of the activity would be in the breeding/moderating blanket area ...

Re: 120 KV 330 milliamp supply

<t>On Ebay of course!<br/> Hippotronnics,Glassman,Precision power,HP,Fluke,Beckman have all shown up on Ebay.<br/> The supply I was looking at had a starting price of $1,000 . It was a Gamma Technologies power supply<br/> regulated had a toriodal output terminal. It had a top voltage of 250 kv at 50...

Re: 120 KV 330 milliamp supply

<r>And people complain they just can't get anything at Ebay!<br/> More frightening is the shipping (5,500lbs) and operation of such a monster. More suited to a corporation than an individual.<br/> I was more inclined to the table top 250kv supply at 50ma.... Oh well!<br/> <br/> You bidding on it Hal...

Re: Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium

<t>Hi Guys:<br/> I did not mean to imply that activation is a trivial issue but rather reply to the views represented in Mr Ritter's paper.<br/> On Dirrect conversion of Xrays I refer you to the the Dirrect Converion of Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Flight books. All the work was done along time before...

Re: Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium

<t>By stacking two materials of two different density you can put a circuit between them and generate power. <br/> The higher density more secondary electrons...flows to an area where the electron numbers are less. <br/> The photo electric effect also can be used to great effect. <br/> <br/> Larry L...

Re: other Fuels?

<t>The boron and proton reaction releases powerful gamma rays in the 2 to 8 mev region. The probability of the lithium reaction is roughly 1 in 300 for unenriched lithium better for just plain Li-6. You can use ion guns to make ions out of all this stuff. Goto Bert Poole' s website for patent info. ...

Re: Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium

<t>Hi Richard:<br/> <br/> I know what you mean about neutron activation.<br/> But a small reactor using the neutron for power would be orders of magnitude less than the billion watt Tokamak Reactor Parks proposed in the mid seventies.<br/> I think small scale is beautiful on the fusion scene.<br/> N...

Re: Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium

<t>In 1995 all the rage was aneutronic....migma cell and all that jazz...I got the feeling the author was prejudiced against a neutron generating process. He tended to lean towards the D - He3 and p-B11 systems. He has good points about power and Bresstrum losses but I felt he depended too much on t...

Re: Fundamental limitations on plasma fusion systems not in thermodynamic equilibrium

<t>Thanks Hal:<br/> <br/> I had bits and pieces of his work but not the full text.<br/> The recirculating electron losses were highly evident when I started in this work. In pulsed fusor a plasma is created in a small shell area. When the negative pulse is created the electron path is straight to th...

Detector decision

I have a nim setup.
I want something portable so I can maybe get my detectors calibrated.
Anyone else here using the Aware PMI-30 ?
It seems like a resonable unit.
