Re: A Sequel to The Google Talk

Dr Park says there were breakthroughs in electron confinement, such as the first ever confirmation of high beta electronic cusp confinement in October 2013. Because of that, he is now attempting to complete work on the validation of Polywell fusion in the next 3 years. Here are the slides from that ...

Re: EMC2 has published a polywell preprint on arXiv

I bring up Polywell occasionally and mostly people are pleasantly interested. Every now and then someone says it will never work and sometime they cite the "fundamental flaws" described by Todd Rider. Could these flaws still be a deal breaker, or has the Polywell concept been shown to overcome these...

Nice job ohiovr.
Not any more. Google video has stopped accepting videos.

So what's keeping the electrons confined is that as a charged particle moves through a magnetic field, it'll feel a force at right angles, making it want to spin in circles. This force is dependant on velocity and magnetic field strength (VxB). Now lets say we have electrons and these helium partic...

Electrons are a fundamental particle actually, all nuclei have the same electrons. The electron has an equal but opposite charge compared to the proton and the idea is that you are able to inject an electron inside of the polywell which is acting as a magnetic bottle for the electrons. The electron...

definition of electrons

The Polywell Wiki entry says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polywell Electrons are introduced outside the "quasi-spherical" MaGrid and are accelerated into the MaGrid due to the electric field. What exactly is meant by "electron" Are they freestanding, meaning they are not part of any atom? What is t...
