Hello everyone from Imperial College, London (UK)

My name's Alex Coglin, currently studying at Imperial College for a Master's in theoretical physics.

I'm in a small team at college, looking to build a cylindrical fusor out of interest and for the challenge it presents. Only just discovered this site, so haven't previously posted - we're already part way through the project (have built a functioning power source at +/- 50kV). As a college-based team, we have access to strong vacuum pumps, deuterium, etc., but also have to toe the health and safety line very carefully, making this a slow project. Any tips in general, or ideas for how to make the fusor more interesting/efficient. For example, we're considering using carbon nanotubes for the inner cage to increase transparency?

Any feedback or direction is greatly appreciated!
