I was looking at the cross section of Deuterium and it seems to me that if you could just go higher in voltage in a fusor IEC, the reaction rate would increase.
For what I gather the problem with fusors is that dielectric break down occurs at about 40-50Kv. It would be interesting to see if anyone could find a way to go higher in voltage than this.
Pulsing is a simple solution but still steady state power would be interesting to explore.
I know that power supplies in these ratings are not the easiest to come by, but I thought I mention this little theory of mine.
