Neutron emission vs. flux (newbies)

... neutrons/sec. So flux is meaningless without a stated distance from the device in comparing fusion device outputs.<br/> <br/> However, for safety purposes, the long distance, 50n/sq cm/sec, flux tells us that getting closer than 10 meters might be inadvisable. Due to the inverse sqare law, ...

Curious newbie

... performing experiments, and decided to come watch the fun.<br/> <br/> I'd like to build a fusor powered by a HV HF AC source, but I need a lot of safety equipment to do this that I don't have and don't know where I would get. Obviously, I need X-ray and neutreno measuring devices, and sheilding, ...

Re: Attension Walmart Shoppers-cheap hv supplies

... point out one drawback to this type of parts procurement. MW Ovens are extremely dirty, greasy, cockroach infested items. Dirty work.<br/> <br/> SAFETY NOTE: Im sure everyone here knows this, but for the silent lurkers out there----SAFELY DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DISSECT ONE ...

Re: Attension Walmart Shoppers-cheap hv supplies

... take a bunch of diodes count them and divide the desired<br/> voltage by the number of diodes. Make sure that you have a twenty percent or more safety margin on the rated voltage. The board must be a fiberglass resin boards like aircraft people use. (light green) Paper Phenolic just won't do. ...

Re: Muon scope pic, Images du Jour

... question.....Why the 100meg resistor?.......... the shield is electrostatic in nature and you want the potential there but no current delivery for safety's sake. Possible shorts or accidental human contact would not blow out the HV supply or injure anyone. Ultra high ohm resistors are often used ...

Re: safety (Boron)

I checked on the web, and decaborane is also exceedingly poisonous ans reactive. These chemicals (boron hydrides) belong in a laboratory context with with safeguards, not in a garage or hacker's basement.

Re: safety (Boron)

... Google, and you get a couple of sites for people who used to make the stuff when it was in vogue as a potential high energy rocket fuel. Read the safety data and it will curl your hair. It is deadly stuff. I don't know that much about decaborane, but its probably poisonous and very flammable to ...

Re: creation of a newbie welcome center

I think some links to basic and not-so basic vacuum technology would be good for newcomers, as well as a couple of high voltage links, and a healthy dose of safety thrown in for good measure.
That's my 0.02 worth...
