Re: Frank Sanns in the hospital!

Sorry I will not get to catch up with you Rich. Sometimes it just doesn't work out. Enjoy the HEAS and hello to everybody down there. It is tough sitting this out but there was zero chance I could have been a passenger to get there. Just too soon afterward.

Re: Generate dense, cold plasma?

Luminous plasmas are an electronic phenomenon and not nuclear. It only takes 13.6 volts to totally ionize hydrogen isotopes. Completely ionized. It will of course recombine with an electron and emit light at the first collision or near collision with anything else. Besides providing light and conduc...

Re: How did you find our Fusor forum?

The problem seems to be Google. It is hitting the site 20 times more than other search engines and nearly 750,000 times per day more than all of the normal users here. It is an obscene number. Problem is that I see no way to slow down the number of hits on the site. We could reduce as is suggested, ...

How did you find our Fusor forum?

The Fusor.net has been getting a HUGE amount of hits on the web. It is overloading our server allocations. It seems that the Bots are crushing us with hits with nearly 1 million per day. Our cost overages are getting out of hand and I think Paul is going to going on a fund drive to help keep the sit...

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

I believe you are trying to differentiate between (rendement) yield ( like the nomenclature used in nuclear weapons) and efficiency which is a thermodynamic property. If this is the case, then you are correct that the fusion products will have a much greater energy than their starting ion energy. In...

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

Could you please elaborate on your statement of "efficiency >1". How are you defining this because even one fusion in a sea of a million joules is still greater than 1 even if it is only 1.000000.....1

Re: Dysprosium activation runs planned

Work hardening is a problem when mechanical energy is put into most metals. There is a limit to how much working a metal can take before it loses its ductility and becomes brittle. For this reason, it is essential to anneal most metals when working them. Some of the softer metals will self anneal wi...

Re: Corrosion cleanup yet again

When I am going to electroplate something, I use this material from Caswell to be sure every bit of oil is gone. They also have good electroplating solutions. No affiliation.
