The grids and shields are sort of the aim and success of the Hirsch-Meeks patent. Make and trap the electrons near the outer shell, keep them sepentining around the outer grid ionizing deuterium atoms to make deuterons which fall through the entire potential gradient to the inner grid for fusion, plus, turn around errant fuel ions.

I wonder if that proton detector Tom mentioned is a germanium telluride solid state device?
