Re: Pulsing in deuterium

... the pulse power methods will have a home in gunned systems.<br/> <br/> Why? <br/> <br/> To get into the usable power range will mean raising the Pontiac Fusors by 10,000 fold. <br/> <br/> To do that will require the generation of large flows of ions, on standard power that will mean caps,chargers,high ...

... So the ideal of pulse takes shape in a new form.<br/> Pulse was a make do until high power could come on line.<br/> I've come full circle back to Pontiac fusors.<br/> Now I've earned the right to criticise the pulse work of others (scars to prove it)<br/> but don't worry , I have a soft spot for ...

Re: Fusor construction-Discussion-Pulse research

... Megley got me interested in this method three years ago.<br/> <br/> Oh Btw the linear and reflex ion gun are differentially pumped just like the Pontiac fusors....You can hardly get good ion numbers at 10^-6 torr.<br/> <br/> New****<br/> It looks like Richard Hull's suspicion of the accuracy ...

Re: Focusing the beam by using differential velocity of the ions

<t>I am sure the technology was there in the world, but not the resources at the Pontiac Street location.<br/> <br/> The Fort Wayne facility was an ITT backwater. The real money there was made by the Federal tube division. (special military stuff). Within this backwater, ...

Re: Pondering a new grid design

... really get to your hands.<br/> After renacting the village smithy I opted for spheres with holes drilled in them like what they were using at Pontiac but without the grid. Drilled spheres of ss work like a charm in fusors you can get up to 3/16" space between the holes and it will still function. ...

Re: FAQ: Fusion ash/byproducts -Energy- How much?

... I have not remotely given up. But beam beam collisional at higher vacuums seems to be the better way in achieving d-d fusion. <br/> Back to Pontiac guys!<br/> <br/> Happy Fusoring!<br/> Larry Leins<br/> Fusor Tech</t>

Re: Direct Electrical Conversion

I have seen boxes for these tubes and they were sold under the Federal, Farnsworth and ITT labels.<br/> ...

Re: Anomalous event
