He uses contact ionization with hot filaments in his high temperature cells. In the conventional fusor the electrostatic field grid
wires glow hot due to eventual hydrogen ion impact. If one were to replace the hydrogen ions with K ions generated and maintained by contact with the grid wires, the electrostatic field would
keep them confined within the fusor so contact with metal or other walls of the chamber would not
result in their neutralization. If this were done with a small partial pressure of hydrogen atoms in the total fusor volume then perhaps the energy gain of the fusor (being used as a hydrino reactor )might result in self sustaining operation. True the hydrino process not nuclear (although according to Mills sufficient hydrogen collapse could result in fusion) but the energy gain of the process should simply add to the fusor energy output. I am also a member of the hydrino group.
