Transform your fusor in thruster, for a second life

Hello,

Here is an interesting paper called "Breakthrough of Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Concept for Advanced Space Propulsion"
at: http://www.irs.uni-stuttgart".de/publikationen/IRS_Publikationen_Dateien/IAC-18C47-C3.512x47993_final.pdf

Re: Fusor without inner grid?

Hello John, With some delay..., I read, with great interest, your patent. I noted that more or less the principle is the same as the SEM-fusor: * radial electromagnetic confinement, * axial electrostatic confinement. However, the trick is, rather to inject ions (as with the SEM-fusor) to ionize mole...

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Hello Steven, >so to recover AC electric energy you need a reverse Tesla coil with a tiny spark gap at the top, that will bleed off and carry >electrons to ground via a high impedance coupled coil. This system (a relaxation oscillator in fact) for which I give a link for others persons (https://www....

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Clever system. Thank you John. Is there some document in the Net about this system and these Transils (I knew Transils but as protection of electronics, not to provide differential voltage)?

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Hello Steven, I just finished to read the two very interesting topics about your FICS apparatus. One thing astonished me is this original way to recover part of the kinetic energy (even if in your device, you recover a very small part, but...), by electrostatic influence, the energy E recovered bein...

Re: Institutional Quackery

I answer to my question (☺): probably the author was thinking of an arc discharge. Among the ions, positive ones will certainly be created in an enormous majority and negative ions (generated by attachment at the negative tip, due to the very big field effect ) in a weak number.

Re: Institutional Quackery

Hello, I read this paper and found it very interesting even if it is a quackery, because it is suggesting, at least, ideas (but questions). For example, it is suggested that negative ions and positive ions be generated by field effect (as GFIS ions sources), at least to minimize the space charge pro...

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

Hello Richard, I understand your point of view. However, having worked in nuclear plant 35 years, I know that we used a lot of models, and I'm quite sure that Westinghouse used also a lot of models. It's just normal, natural and without any ethic or philosophical problem. Fusion is like fission (jus...
