Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

I have the new chamber modelled in 3D now, so if anyone with access to SIMION wants to give it a go please PM me and I shall send the STP file.

Thanks... Steven

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Dan, Thanks again for pointing that out, I am not discarding any hypothesis at this stage. As you suggest it may be operating as a simple linear collider, keep in mind that I have built and tested several versions of simple linear colliders before and found them all to be very unstable, plasma seems...

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

A fusor running on the order of a million neutrons per second puts out microwatts of power in radiation form. At 60kV output voltage, this would be picoamps-nanoamps of current gained by the fusion, even if 100% of the fusion energy were magically turned into electrical potential. You're measuring ...

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Richard, Okay I would rather have your negative feedback than no feedback at all, following I have a few short comments after your quotes; I asked about the wall outlet, HV power supply demand only, that fed the energy to the fusor. What did your HV fusion supply take out of the wall to make fusion ...

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Thanks again Michael, You are correct, I am sharing my ideas and everything I understand on fusor.net, all in the name of science, no affiliation with any other interested parties and obviously, like most of the guys on the forum, I am funding the experiments from my own pocket. Back in 2005 when I ...

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Thanks for feedback.. I agree 100% with Michael Bretti's first reply, the noise levels are high and I will explain why further down. it is also a good idea to repeat identical runs with air and deuterium for comparison, this is easy to do and I will. I don't agree with Richard at all, he hasn't once...

Re: F.I.C.S Fusion Runs

Hi Guys, Over the last couple of weeks I have been messing around with the vacuum gauge on my machine. After my Edwards gauge failed, Andrew Seltzman suggested I get an MKS 901P of which there were several for sale on eBay, so I bought a couple of those, but living in Australia everything takes at l...

Re: Muon Catalyzed Fusion

Yes, I agree with Michael, Crockett is very ambitious, but at 16 you can affords to be. FWIW, there is/was an Australian startup who advertised that they were working on some kind of new muon catalysed fusion, but the operation looked shonky, I more or less suspect they were dishonestly or naively o...

Re: Easy FICS For Your Fusor

John, I am a slow thinker, it may well have been a seed planted all those years ago that suddenly started germinating in my brain ;) Transil diodes as you suggest should do the job too, possibly better as they can handle more current, and 400V diodes means half as much soldering, I am all for that! ...

Re: Easy FICS For Your Fusor

Bob,

That sounds like boot strapping, how can you get a current to flow between two taps on a CW multiplier?
