Re: Pulsing fusion

Carl

I am not really interested to continue this - I reiterate; -
>A simple sparkgap filled with D2 will get you a Neutron burst when discharged.
and a focus fusion device proves this - take it or leave lt or build a differiental one for yourself then comment.

Re: Pulsing fusion

<t>Opps! - I did tell you heh! heh! heh! but dont be discouraged - good work can be done and much learned on a small buget. You will need a basic Neutron detector at lest.<br/> <br/> I reiterate; -<br/> >A simple sparkgap filled with D2 will get you a Neutron burst when discharged.<br/> <br/> A typi...

Re: Pulsing fusion

<t>Thyratrons avalange - that is, they will pass full current very quickly with holdoff until triggered.<br/> <br/> PS. don't take any notice of the debate between Carl & Richard and myself, we are old antagonists but still respect each other and agree to disagree occasionally and try to avoid f...

Re: POPS

<t>Carl & Richard<br/> <br/> I simple report my findings even when not believed. Many failures are not reported and I do make mistakes.<br/> <br/> I am getting high energy pulses of single figure nanosec- you can rectify a magnetron o/p to get a pulse train, I have done this. - try building a di...

Re: POPS

<t>Carl <br/> <br/> I had posted all before and that I was working with high energy pulses - which is my main activity and the reason for a 3 meter deep pond in my back garden for several years now.<br/> <br/> My main cap bank is 10 off 25MFD 20kv caps. ( I can't lift one ) I had posted photos of sa...

Re: magnetrons

Point taken Carl, it was some of the articles pointed to, I found interesting, which I would not have read otherwise

Re: POPS

<t>Conrad - the need for shielding occurs when the power goes up - low power with low repartation rates generally are not a problem but standard RF shielding will work ok . <br/> <br/> With all shielding issues, distance from the source is best.<br/> <br/> A camera should not be a problem for low po...

Re: POPS

<t>I disaggree with Richard on this one - a 10Ghz Magnetron ( X band ) will give you 50 pico-sec pulses spaced at 50 pico-sec if halfwave rectifyed and shaped ( PFN ) and can be high-powered - well within amateur capabilty and access. - A nice cheap ( Ebay ) oscillator for 50 pico-sec work. Or a 2.4...
