Has anyone used boroethane or other boron hydride gasses in their fusors? It seems to me that using a single fuel gas would simplify operations.
Also, does anyone have experimental data on boron-hydrogen reactions? I like them because the fuels are common and easy to get, and the resulting reaction is aneutronic. Does anyone know about side reactions between other isotopes present (like boron-10 and deuterium)?
