A theory of a possible method of fusion

It may be difficult to separate "theory" from "application," but let''s see if this helps facilitate the discussion.

A theory of a possible method of fusion

Post by frostyk72 » Fri Oct 14, 2016 1:09 pm

Fusion idea 15th October 2016

Plasma appears to spin around magnets on field lines
In theory this array of magnetic fields might have plasma spinning
opposing direction to next magnet And Might over lap plasma lines
and maybe increase chance of fusion.

\/ shaped sphere of magnets.
North Pole of magnet +
South Pole of magnet -
magnet \ and /

+\- -/+ +\- -/+ +\- -/++\--/+

Same field of magnet facing next one.
Welded in place by a small rod between in centre
in a curve to make a sphere

made a small picture in paint with a possible tokamak configuration,

Is this experiment similar to your idea?

Steven -

I like your configuration, but I don't think you've modeled the fields correctly. If you were to use the electromagnet configuration that you posted, you'll get behavior more akin to what I've posted in the attachment. (Go Paint!)

Because the magnets are layered in opposites, you've essentially created layers of plasma that interfere with each others' flow and cause collisions. This COULD lead to more fusion, but if the collisions aren't high enough in energy, not enough will fuse to make it worth the energy.

Note in my rough sketch that I also pointed out some low energy plasma points. The distance from the magnets and the interference from the wall serves to 'slow down' the plasma. The inner tube, inside the coils, is basically just a mess of opposite, linear, homogeneous magnetic fields that trap and squeeze the little plasma that enters into messy, low energy knots.

Had a brief look
Doesn't appear to be from what I read

second attempt at paint shopping idea.

a possible fusor type configuration for testing idea.
would just take some fancy grid work to make it work.

made a more simpler idea so easier to understand.
