Have you gained enough experience with fusor III to form an idea of how the fusion reaction rate (as given by the neutron count) scales with current?.

I remember reading a paper by Miley a few years ago that predicted that the reaction rate should vary non-linearly with current. Starting off linear and then switching to I^2 and then to I^3, I^4 etc as the current was increased.

I would be interested to how your results compared with this.
