Re: Questions regarding the Boron market

There is a condition which I like to speculate on though. Some charts show a P-B11 fusion cross section spike at ~ 120 KeV. This spike is narrow, so to take advantage of it you would need to have the energy spread / thermalization of your plasma to be fairly narrow. But assuming this is possible, i...

Re: Questions regarding Boron fuel

Maybe I was not too specific with my question but what I actually ment was DD fusion during p-B11 fusion.

Re: Questions regarding Boron fuel

Ok and what about DD fusion. Does it so happen that the protons form deuterium which in turn fuses with another deuterium particle? If yes what are the percentages one can expect compaired to proton boron fusion. (i.e. if one has to calculate the amount of boron necessary for a reactor with a capaci...

Re: Questions regarding the Boron market

Dear Dan, I have some questions regarding your post. This is an important consideration as it determines the baseline density that is permissable within the vacuum chamber. Above a certain limit, the neutral gas can breakdown via Pashin arcing (glow discharge) and drain the potential well establishi...

Questions regarding Boron fuel

Dear all, For my research regarding the boron fuel and market for the polywell reactor I got into contact with someone from Convergent Scientific. I asked him some questions on the market and on the preferabel fuel type for the Polywell reactor. As I heard from several on this forum that decaboranes...

Questions regarding the Boron market

Dear all, Earlier this year I posted a topic regarding a research I am doing on the Polywell technique. Now my professor asked me to get an overview on the boron market. This information can be used to further create awareness on the possibilities of the technique. I already send several questions t...

Re: Research questions on Boron fuel for Polywell reactor

I am honestly quite new to this so any help is welcome. I have some follow up questions. - Boron is not a gas at STP type conditions. The probable solution is to use decoboranes if boron ions are sourced from a gas feed, as opposed to erosion of some solid source. You mean decaborane right? Would th...

Research questions on Boron fuel for Polywell reactor

Dear all, I am currently in the fourth year of my applied physics studies and I am asked to do research on the Polywell topic. I was very happy when I found this forum. Up to now I found a lot of useful information for my thesis. Currently I set some new research questions regarding the fuel for the...
