Re: Killer deal on a GeLi gamma spec

Too Late! I scraped it out for components. I now have a nice dewar for sale and a killer Canberra charge sensitive amp that I will never sell as it is identical to the one I use with me 3He neutron detector. I also have a 504 gram germanium crystal in hand. Yesterdays asking price for a a 1kg ingot ...

Killer deal on a GeLi gamma spec

Attached are images of a Princeton Gamma Tech intrinsic Germanium, gamma spec system I acquired at an unbelievably great price. Model # IGC2020 No claim of working, but I figure the $2000 worth of Germanium in it and the PGT killer neutron detection ready pre-amp along with the large dewar are worth...

Re: Should I Buy the Pump?

Fabulous system. Looks in great shape and the fittings all look like standard ISO fittings with stock KF fittings to the mechanical pump. If you have the water flow to cool it, this looks to be a killer deal.

Re: Answer keys w/ explanation?

I always despised this notation, but it creeps into a lot of scientific math.... sec^-1 means " per sec" and cm^-3 means "per cubic centimeter"....Sadly, after a while you get used to it.

Re: Used 37" cyclotron on craigslist

There is more important stuff missing than is there. A great little fixer-upper for the guy who has the $100,000 + and the time to bring it back to life.

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

P + B11 is a dream that no one is realistically working on. We can't even do the easiest of all fusions T + D and make it go. Not much to say for ITER either. It is a giant money pit headed for failure with plenty of good and viable excuses when it doesn't pan out, but there is always that new thing...

Glass and any form of plastic vessel will not support fusion work.

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

We are back to the fact that no one has yet produced a single watt of usable electricity by the fusion process. Fission distributed electrical energy to light and power the town of Arco, Idaho, 7 or 8 years after the first atom bomb was exploded at trinity. H-bomb to fusion electricity languishes 62...

Re: Proposal of a new type of electrostatic confinement reactor able to produce nuclear fusions with an efficiency super

We have had this discussion many times here in the past. You put in 1000 watts to a fusor and get out 10 microwatts of fusion energy. No energy is lost, only gained! The 1000watts plus the 10 microwatts of fusion. Thus, we have output 1000.000001 watts of heat energy. What are we seeking to do with ...
