The new fusor V I have already pushed to 300 watts in air with no real glow on the grid now. This amazes me. 5 microns, 24 kV, 13 ma. It is great to have no issues in this iteration. The old system would arc around 20 kV. I might expect the grid to glow at about 450 watts using deuterium. I am glad to be rid of the cylindrical, solid grid and back to a spherical system.

The x-rays are fearsome at the window and all day will be consumed with removing them from the picture. A long way to go before I rest
