This is along the same general line as the brush discussion...

One Idea I've been considering is to use a spiral topology for the inner grid (just take a single
piece of wire and wrap it in a loose spiral from one pole of a sphere to the other). I'll have
to make a jig sphere that is dismantleable, but
that shouldn't be too difficult. You could make
a matching spiral ridge on the inner surface of the anode that would emit deuterons in the gaps between the windings of the inner sphere.

Has anyone considered any other topoligies besides the standard rings approach?
