Re: Jurczyk Patent - Gas target neutron generation and applications

<t>Jurczyk and Stubbers where students of Dr. Miley and they came up with some really cool concepts for the IEC work at UI. If memory serves me right Brian proposed a concept called REEDO which used RF energy super imposed on the grid to increase reaction rates.<br/> <br/> These two and a few others...

Re: A watershed for 'fusion-energy' patents at the USPTO?

<t>I know that the view I'm about to present will not be the popular one, but I see no harm in granting patents on unproven technology. Why? Because if the patented concept cannot be reduced to practice within the life span of the patent the claims will be unenforceable and of no intrinsic value.<br...

Re: AC TO DC???

<t>I personally would use a Bridge rectifier. Now this may have to be very sturdy depending on the size and power of the transformer. You're going to have to size the rectifier correctly for the transformer power and voltage. If you want to smooth the DC you'll need a filter capacitor and that could...

Re: Fine progress for ITER.

<t>Carl I can respect that. My work is still in the preliminary stage so there is no working prototype, however the fundamental concept behind it is sound according to the people that I consulted with at UI, Purdue and at the University of Wisconsin.<br/> <br/> I will talk about it in detail one of ...

No just don't have a need to get your input at this moment.

Re: Fine progress for ITER.

Sorry Carl I have no need for your kind of input on my concept.

Re: Fine progress for ITER.

<t>A couple of problems with doing breakthrough work inside government funded circles is that for example, DoE alternative fusion research is strictly Academic, that's their mandate by Congress. Nothing in the DoE research budget for fusion involves any attempt at achieving a power producing machine...

Re: Fine progress for ITER.

<t>Chris,<br/> <br/> First I called it a Fusor because that's what everyone calls it here. In fact I call it IEC research. Second the Pollywell while grossly under funded is making progress and it is a professional effort. I myself have done work in the IEC field and have a very different approach t...

Re: Fine progress for ITER.

<t>Nostradamus here, I predict that after they workout all the bugs they will come to the conclusion that they need a bigger device with more power to achieve break even fusion. Just my prediction. This will buy the Fusor community at least 20 more years to catch up and pass the Tokamak Academic exp...
