Re: A theoretical discussion based on data re. fusor conditioning fusion

The other observation is the "ruddiness" of the plasma and star during start up. It cleans up on consecutive days of operation. Interestingly, this effect is seen even if the chamber is pumped down to 10E-5 torr for a good part of the day. This should pull out a great deal of water and air that is t...

Re: Titanium walls

Then there is always a chamber within a chamber. Like with my larger chamber, I can put in outer grids for a variety of purposes. My usual outer grid has around 100 needle points to facilitate ionization. It stands off from the main chamber but is grounded. A series of curved strips or even a titani...

Re: Titanium walls

Titanium is only one of many elements that load hydrogen. While it cannot be electroplated by conventional means, palladium can be. Early on I did some palladium plating and it was rather easy. Many companies sell plating solutions that could do the task inside of a small chamber.

Re: Frank Sanns in the hospital!

My timing for this health scare came just before the HEAS. It was probably for the better as had I been driving or in a remote area, I would most likely not have survived. As it was, it was a battle that was nearly lost but for some reason, I was spared and am grateful. A few days ago, I received a ...

I miss my real time picture updates starting Friday night and through Saturday. Missed all of you. Hopefully good pictures will show up.

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...
