Re: “Magnetically insulated grid IEC”

I would suggest 2-3 large Turbos and heating equipment for bakeout and RGA- right? I'm sure you want to get a vacuum as clean as possible to reduce Bremsstrahlung from any remaining high-Z atoms. I always dream of a vaccum chamber in a chamber where the outer chamber is filled with deuterium at ambi...

Re: RF excited ion sources

the ICP ion source works - here with pure nitrogen, About 100W (of 800-1000W).
Impedance matching was a little bit difficult, and I lost a lot of power in the shielded cable. a better cable did the job!

ITER Fusion Reactor & European Fusor Meeting

I've been to France to visit the construction site of ITER (www.iter.org) To keep it short: It is massive! It is gigantic!! Here is one of the pictures I took (view to the reactor pit with the huge clean-room style assembly hall in the background) - but there is much more to tell. I could speak hour...

Re: Invitation to "European Fusor Meeting" -> NEW DATES!!

It took some time, but finally I made it ;-) https://doodle.com/poll/9dsph9twqin5e4uf Please let’s agree on the date first. I will then come back to you regarding accommodation, venue and further details. Depending on the number off attendees you can also give a short presentation of your fusor effo...

Re: Invitation to "European Fusor Meeting"

I think we could also postpone the meeting to a day where most of the possible attendees are available. Thinking about January 2018.

Re: Tri-Alpha Energy just launched its website

Does anyone have a personal contact to Mr. Michl Binderbauer (president and CTO of Tri-Alpha)? I tried to get in contact with him (as he is also Austrian) - but did not get any feedback.

Re: Archived - European Fusor

@ Dennis: Using oil was an idea – but I try to stay dry as long as possible. The transformer has about 40 kg – so moving it and building a hull around it seems not to be that easy. I once thought about using SF6 instead of oil – but it was not possible to get it anymore. Regarding the diodes: I alre...

Re: Archived - European Fusor

Hi friends of fusion! Within the next weeks I will travel to ITER.org together with some Austrian scientists. We will have a Special tour and also meet some of the guys working at the superconducting components. Pictures will be available in October. Her ist an actual picture of my new CF double cro...

COMSOL simulation of a FUSOR?

Hi!

Has anyone tried to simulate the moving/colliding ions inside a fusor using COMSOL?

BR,
Werner
