Lawson Criterion

<t>All the "big science" guys with their Tokomaks are trying to satisfy the "Lawson Criterion" which is a certain plasma density and a certain temperature for a minimum time. If we want to make a fusor that can produce more energy than it consumes, do we have to meet the same criterion, or is this a...

Re: Why a Spherical Shape for IEC?

<t>I've been playing around with different configurations similar to what you have drawn for a while now, and one of the main problems I see is that unless the "disk" part of the chamber is an insulator, the electrons from the cathode will just arc directly to the vessel instead of staying in the mi...

ion confinement

How likely is it that an ion would touch the outer shell of a fusor in other words get close enough to transfer any heat energy to the shell?
