Australian Breakthrough Fusion (Duh, Chirp Lasers)

Post by russssellcrow » Sat Mar 14, 2020 3:48 am

I've been reading the boards for a while, and have been entranced by gunning and the sort. But, it appears that the Aussies have leapfrogged any tech we have presented. Their approach to Boron-11 Fusion is brilliant and seemingly immaculate. This begs for re-creation and augmentation.

We have a 1400 W CW Nd;YAG which I will propose to attempt to re-purpose to Chirp modification, for the use in Boron Fusion. Wish me luck, the Board of Directors can be recalcitrant.

Putt-putt boat fusion again. As always, much ado with no physical embodiment or key data related to an assembled and tested device. Stuff missing like PRR, a total collected energy tally for the reaction and the actual returned, usable electrical energy output.

I know....Its new, it needs time to develop, It is still in the conceptual stage, it is a theoretical thing right now. You just wait and see!.....Yada-yada-yada.

With the lack of anything concrete and physically positive, all I have are negatives. It isn't real now, has no physical embodiment and no electrical output even if fully tested. Of that I am positive.

In the end, it is another announced fusion wonderment. I have put it on my shelf of fabulous fusion ideas and concepts in the shelf-section marked P-B11.

I think there are much better things to do with IC pulsed fusion than generate electricity.

I agree with Ian.
