The UHV chamber that we will be using for our next round of fusion experiments arrived today. I have attached many pictures of the chamber as well as a picture of our feedthrough/grid assembly and the fitting adapter for our diffusion pump. We are hoping to have fusion by plasma and fusion by next week.

Thanks for following our progress.

Very impressive; can't wait for you to get the system under vacuum and post your first plasma with that unit!

More pictures of our progress attached below. We are currently tracking down a bad leak that we think is in the foreline. After that is resolved, fusion should be soon.

Looks great Scott. I noticed your MFC is plumbed in backwards. Does it work properly in reverse flow direction?
