Superfluid Sonoluminescence

This forum is for other possible methods for fusion such as Sonolumenescense, Cold Fusion, CANR/LENR or accelerator fusion. It should contain all theory, discussions and even construction and URLs related to "other than fusor, fusion".

Superfluid Sonoluminescence

Post by Azygous » Tue Jul 27, 2010 6:13 am

So just a thought here. I've been studying superfluid for a while now and found some things very interesting. Pressurized super fluid can also be a superconductor. So if just two nuclei fused somehow in the super fluid would all the radiation be superconducted away from the center preventing a build up of heat and then turning the resultant helium into super fluid.

It would be basically a super fluid hydrogen to helium converter. At the center a buckyball to target with sonoluminescence. Possibly triggered by the phenomenon of second sound. This is referred to as the way certain forms of radiation travel in superfluid. Similar to sound.

If a target in the center could be struck with this super compressing sound wave then it could convert the liquid hydrogen into helium while conducting the radiation outward to be converted to electricity which would prevent the superfluid from ever warming up.

Is Superfluid Sonoluminescence possible using 'second sound'?

Ultra Cold Nuclear Fusion? Just a thought... Thanks for reading.

You can not convert hydrogen into helium by a sound wave - there just isn't enough energy (by many,many orders of magitude.) To convert hydrogen isotope (D-D or D-T) into helium is what fusors do but at many tens of millions of degree's Kelvin. Super fluids exist only near absoult zero (a few Kelvin at best) and if it is heated up even just a little (1 K), you lose the super fluid properties.

Sonoluminescence has never been seen in a He super fluid (and for good reason - it is very hot: a few 10K Kelvin!) so that is not a concept to apply here.

Massive carbon cages (Bucky balls)do not really add to the situation here in any way but they are fun things that some day may be useful

Having a super fluid (near 0K) doesn't help fuson at all and you are looking at a dead end here.

Keep reading but you might want to read Sci Am or Phys Today articles on these subjects to get up to speed on current knowledge.

Keep trying
