Re: My progress II

Hello Mr. Brown, Thank you for your advises. About the school presentation, I was thinking to use my fusor more like a display and show some videos about it, but I haven't set up this presentation yet. Mr. Allers, Thank you for your post. I am learning a lot about fusion and improving my english. I ...

Re: My progress II

Hello Mr Brown, Thank you for your advise. I used the Barrier Calculator from University of Toronto ( https://ehs.utoronto.ca/our-services/x-ray-safety/x-ray-barrier-calculator/ ) and got a 0.83 mm thickness, but we are planning to use 1.0 mm and in some parts 2.0 mm. My father will work with the le...

Re: My progress II

Hello, I have been working on my Fusor (it was named Kelvin II) and I have a lot of improvements. It is almost complete to produce neutros. I would like to share my progress in my neutron detector. I change some emails with Mr. Bob Higgins and I am using his paper ( http://www.fusor.net/board/viewto...

Re: My progress II

Hello Mr. Brown,

Thank you for your suggestions. I am using a turbo pump. I believe one of my gaskets isn't very good, I will change it and heat all the chamber to see what happens.

Regards,

Eduardo

Re: My progress II

Hello, Thank you for help. The lowest pressure was 4.2E-4 torr. We measured the increase, and in one minute it increased from 10 to 20 militorr. Is it good? In my next try I will get more precise measurements and try to get plasma during 30 minuetes to clean the chamber. Do you think a smaller grid ...

Re: My progress II

Hi, today we started the first test of the fusor, it is almost complete. Still need to finish the deuterium line, the tension and current measurements and buy a 40 kV transformer. Now we are using a neon transformer of 12 kV. On the first try, it was not very good. On the second try the plasma ignit...

Re: My progress II

Hello, Just to update. We just received a 25L deuterium lecture bottle. IMG_1584.jpg We already ordered a turbo molecular pump and some parts. I believe next month I will be able to run a demofusor (12kV / without deuterium) in this setup. If someone want to see my last fusor: http://www.fusor.net/b...

Re: My progress II

Hello Jon,

I am from Brazil and I'm 10 years old. I bought my chamber at Ebay, there you can find a lot of stuff for your project.

I saw your channel on Youtube and I subscribed it, I liked and want to follow your videos. Its good to have another kid around here.

Nice to talk to you,
Eduardo
