More Upgrades

It has been a while since my last post, but I've continued working on the device. There have been several significant upgrades:

- Feedthrough and ballast resistor changed to accommodate 60kV (with the assistance of mineral oil).

- New 1kW 60kV power supply

- Pressure control using MKS 250 and 248

- Custom designed remote control panel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gplmr2G ... e=youtu.be)

This can possibly be used as a neutron generator for real life applications. Try sputtering titanium to make a beam on target device. From a PM with Mr. Seltzmen, coating the grid would help more so than the walls.

But in all that is an extremely good system, especially for how small it is! Really good job and I wish you the best!

I do not think I have ever seen a better presentation of co-joint functioning metering systems. (you tube)
Fabulous! a lot of thought and scaling went into this effort.
