Build A Fusion Reactor
Does Wattage for the reacotr matter? If so, what would you recomend?
Getting more energy that you put in is the entire point. A simple example is the car you run. You provide a spark and get motion, air conditional and the power for another spark. The only thing you need is more fuel.
Per the original article you can put one together for $500. But the original articale was written in the 70's.
It's just the smallest fusion reactor. Not meant to be super efficient. Just fun to build.
It would likely get sucked out with the rest of the gases. Some deuterium/tritium would stay to get fused again or failed and fizz.
How old do u need to be to obtain a radiation maxing permit in Canada
Is it possible to just use a geiger counter with the right GM tube instead of a Neutron Bubble Dosimeter?
also, have you figured out how to recompress a bubble dosimeter without their equipment? just high pressure, or is there more?
how did you go about calculating the intensity of x-ray emission? or did you just shield liberally?
depens on the country you live in. In the US you need permession but that's just that no 12 year old's are going to try this
this wont work
what diameter tungsten wire is appropriate for the grid?
Hello. Could you also braze using silver and flux or could you soft solder using a silver bearing solder (one without lead and zinc)? Could one also weld only on the outside instead of the inside? Why or why not? Could a Cockroft Walton multiplier also be used for the power supply? Thank you in advance for any input.
A Neon Sign Transformer is fine for a demo fusor. You'll be able to get a plasma ball in the center of your grid. But you will never get fusion. NST's are current limited and you cannot connect them in series to get the 35-40kv you will need for fusion. Stay away from Microwave Oven Transformers, too. You're looking for a big X-ray transformer for real fusion.http://www.fusor.net/ is an excellent resource.
Well, I know what I'm working on next...
I have seen many things like this before.
Depends on your goals and schedule. Between 1k and 10k generally, with a very common spot in the 2-4k range.
how much is this gonna cost?
