Fusor Reassembled

Post by Scott Moroch » Fri Sep 14, 2018 3:06 am

After about 2 years of my fusor sitting disassembled in my basement, I finally had an opportunity to reassemble it. I have upgraded the high voltage feedthrough and am now using a turbo pump. Base pressure is now 5E-7 Torr. Here are pictures of the first plasmas with it. More runs up to 80kV are planned.
