Congratulations Enzo! It’s great seeing you working closely with your dad to create and run some cool science experiments.

I believe you are the first person to use the GS Neutron detector to claim fusion. It seemed like you went through some issues, and it would be a good separate post to describe your trials and tribulations. Was lead shielding really necessary? The counting went down by two orders of magnitude when you moved and shielded the detector, but from the pictures it wasn't apparent the distance was all that different. I know you changed the grid, but I’m skeptical this would make orders of magnitude difference. Countless others have had issues with noise on their detectors. Was this a factor with yours? For others who might try to use this detector it would be great to share your experience.

I hope you continue to run experiments with your fusor and post your findings.

Bruce

On the GS Neutron detector. We think the shielding was not necessary. But at one point we were getting a lot of noise and needed the shielding. The loose ground on the tube was probably the cause. The GS Neutron is a "sealed" unit, but we disesambled it to do the moderator , no moderator test. This banged the tube around and the ground got lose. The loose ground made it false on xrays. I just hand tightend up the ground and it was fine.

As soon as we make the new pulse ark welder we will make a nice 2D cathode. A 3D cathode in a 2D environment is not as good.
