Sorry, won't start any more threads unless you think of a better place for this.

Re: New Configuration

Time and or money always seems to be the limiting factor.
I am planning on obtaining deuterium and detector (as soon as money permits).
But if you or anyone else is willing to try this configuration in there chamber, I may be of assistance.

I have posted this a few times, just wanted to give everyone an opportunity before I declare it unique.

Can anyone tell me what this device is called?

I built this device, it creates and holds plasma around 2 cathodes electrically bonded in the center of the chamber. The anode is on the horizontal plane of the cathode gap. Has anyone seen this device before? I can not find any information on it. Link to video on you-tube. https://www.youtube.com/w...

Re: Is this a fusor?

The only variable in the system was the vacuum in the chamber and the camera was sensitive to UV. What you could not see in the video was a pink "tornado" on the bottom cathode or an even brighter orb between the cathodes. The well defined edges of the plasma and the disappearance of the ion stream ...

Re: Is this a fusor?

From my understanding of the physics, this is what should happen and the observations of the experiment confirm the results.

Re: Is this a fusor?

Ions (+) accelerated towards the two cathodes (-) in the center.
From a distance, the two cathodes look like a single point charge to the ions and accelerate towards them.
The ions passing between the cathodes begin an orbit around the cathodes.

Re: Is this a fusor?

Can you think of any reason it would not produce a viable environment for fusion?
And can you direct me to the best sources for deuterium and neutron dosimeters please?

Re: Is this a fusor?

Just wanted to know if anyone had tried this configuration before.

Re: Is this a fusor?

Not quite, the electrode configuration is different.
