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

Hello Dennis, I'm not sure you understand the paper, or perhaps it is due to my poor English. The goal is to show that it is not reasonably possible to produce electricity with a fusion system based on a linear device, this based on many simulations done with my particle simulator (Multiplasma). Tha...

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

Hello to all, For information, after many simulations, you will find my conclusion about the possibility of fusion by frontal collision in a linear device, here: * in Frenh: http://f6cte.free.fr/Conclusion_sur_fusion_dans_un_dispositif_lineaire.pdf * in English: http://f6cte.free.fr/Conclusion_about...

Re: Alternative Reactor Design

Hello Justin, Thanks for the interesting links. I'm going to have a look on them. Note: in my simulation only electrostatic confinement applied (magnetic confinement at reasonanable field value (i.e. B<1T) is not efficient at all). >Todd Rider's PhD thesis I read part of the two papers that he wrote...

Re: Alternative Reactor Design

Hello Justin and all, Interesting information. However, I suppose that the beams were not confined. Without confinement, as you know the beams expand due to space charge and collisions.Here a snapshot of beams confined in a trap and of course not confined outside the trap. It can be seen (I hope) th...

Proposal of an electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear aneutronic fusions with a yield superior to 1

Proposal of an electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear aneutronic fusions with a yield superior to 1 Hello to all, Following my previous message about a new type of fusion reactor, I have implemented on Multipslasma (1.6) the aneutronic fusion H+ <-> B11+ and added a new paper bas...

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

Hello Frank and Richard, >I believe you are trying to differentiate between (rendement) yield ( like the nomenclature used in nuclear weapons) and >efficiency which is a thermodynamic property. Yes "yield" seems well. I adopt it. Thanks. >The problem being the thermodynamic summation of all of that....

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

Hello Richard, Thanks for the reminder. Moreover, if you try Multiplasma (which is a simulator of nuclear reactor) you will see that the efficiency of a Fusor is very low (about 1E-9 or 1E-10), which will confirm your assertion. However, this does not answer to my question: as I propose a system whi...

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

Hello Frank, I'm rewriting my paper due to your remark: >Could you please elaborate on your statement of "efficiency >1". How are you defining this because even one fusion in a sea of a million >joules is still greater than 1 even if it is only 1.000000.....1 In French, we make a difference between ...

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

Hello Frank, It is well defined in my second paper (I hope...): http://f6cte.free.fr/Proposal_of_a_new_type_of_fusion_reactor_Rev_A.pdf The efficiency is the ratio between the kinetic energy of the fusion products supplied by the reactor to the consumed electrical energy. As a minimum, this ratio mu...
