Re: Deuterium Oxide Handling

<t>Fellows,<br/> <br/> After the electrolysis you can send the wet deuterium to a palladium tube and at the other surface of the tube you will get extra dry deuterium.<br/> As a matter of fact, some commercial hydrogen generators employ a cell with 6 or 8 palladium tubes (approx. 1/4" diameter and 4...

Re: A must read paper - Tritium decay constant reduction

<t>David, <br/> I have to apologyze myself. Is easier to post than to check...When you grew older, mind tricks you and you are not willing to accept that!<br/> Emery's paper is about SUCCESS in modifying decay rates (but by a little) and specifically in cases of electron capture decays.<br/> Also yo...

Re: Proposed polarity - reversal experiment

<t>As you already stated, there are a lot of variables playing in the fusor.<br/> Did the Farnsworth team published that event? Does exist records of all the monitored parameters during that neutron surge?<br/> Double checks seem a must. I see you record simultaneously neutrons, gamma rays and activ...

Re: Proposed polarity - reversal experiment

Richard,
I searched into the fusor files not finding the Jon Rosentiel's runaway.
Would you be so kind to point me to a detailed report of it?

Re: Proposed polarity - reversal experiment

Thanks, Richard.
I was trying to understand what was gone wrong with my message!
By the way, what do you think of a "blank" test? Surely using other ion mass require a correction factor to be applied in order to evaluate the delivered power to the grid.

Re: Proposed polarity - reversal experiment

Probably a "blank" test can be runned in order to see if the runaway is due just to an excess of power, applying the same conditions of the fusor but with a non-fusing gas, may be N2 or Ar.

Re: Glow Cleaning: How to ??

<t>Mark<br/> Here we go again. I forgot your question about what is "glow cleaning".<br/> It is related to "glow discharge" condition. Gases at low pressures under high voltages go into a ion conduction discharge. (See "Paschen's law"). Under this condition you apply energy to all the inner surfaces...

Re: Glow Cleaning: How to ??

Mark,
The Search option got me to a better and detailed procedure by Dave Cooper (The "Drydown Zone" R/D magazine), posted 2003-12-23, 01:32.

Re: Glow Cleaning: How to ??

Mark,
Surely there are other alternative procedures but just 100 microns of dry gas and 200/300 DC V @ no more that 100mA will help a lot.
Check Sam's Laser FAQ for typical laser tube processing.

Re: A must read paper - Tritium decay constant reduction

<t>Sorry for my English! I was trying to express that the labs and researchers may have some news, not the laws of nucleus !<br/> Of course all new ideas must to be tested and that one about a possible interaction inside the metal lattices is exciting. <br/> I am prone to be open minded, even a slig...
