Re: Reality check

:: Show me this statement. Where does he say this? Was he talking about 50kg per individual ECat or total for the 100ish ECats per 1MW installation? This would be fairly incontrovertible "proof of a lie" if he actually claims to have 50kg of lead around EACH ECat . Mats Lewan Publicerad 18 mars 201...

Re: Reality check

I have no problem with anyone "thinking" he is lying as long as they don't present it as FACT. I think there is a good chance he is lying myself. But I keep running into folk who "know" he is lying and present their "lots and lots of nothing" as "proof". Please, put up, or shut up. The issue is tha...

Re: Bussard's Polywell patent application is finally dead.

It means nothing, insofar as the physics of it.

It means everything, insofar as no for-profit body will invest in its R&D whilst there is no protection on commercial returns-on-investment at the end of it.

Re: Bussard's Polywell patent application is finally dead.

The whole thing is now unpatentable because it is in the public domain. However, if there was some key feature or enablement that was required to make it work, then that new enablement would be patentable. But, in a sort of 'perverse reversal' of fortunes, Polywell can now only be patented if it doe...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

Locally hot and cold can describe so many different situations that it can be interpreted as you wish. A fusion reaction process is either intending towards working with thermalisation, or intending away from it. This is the explicit difference. Absolutely no interpretation whatsoever. As for inert...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

This absolute statement is miss leading. With fusors, fusion does scale faster than losses with a fixed grid transparency as the size increases. It is just that the difference is small. For a Fusor to reach breakeven, the size needs to be very large- foot ball stadium to Earth diameter, depending o...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

Has it really been so long that you've all forgotten how this is supposed to work? Or is there more data that I've missed somehow? Potential well formation in Polywells is shown experimentally to occur, and to reach at least 80% of the drive voltage even in relatively primitive machines. Wiffleball...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

Maxwellian or not? The electrons would definitely be Maxwellian, or strongly thermalising at least. But that is immaterial as they would be relatively cold. The fuel ions should be definitely non Maxwellian. The back-of-envelope estimate above presumes the best of all possible outcomes - that the f...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

Some would argue that the machine provides the ability to exceed the limit, as it operates in a method not applicable to the theory behind the limit. Running it higher on the cross section curve looks like it will help, but still not enough for D-D. Seeking Net Power, one would have to go for a low...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

http://aries.ucsd.edu/raffray/publications/FST/FST08_Najmabadi.pdf In a stellarator, most of the confining field is produced by external coils (the poloidal field is generated by the external coils as well as the bootstrap current). The absence of a large externally driven plasma current leads to ma...

Re: Actual Polywell News!

Show me your numbers that you can not attract enough fuel ions to have a fusion event with a 15KV electron well using what we publically know about (e-) density in the polywell. You say Brillion limit, I say show me. Consider Brillouin Limit: Electron density/m^3, Ne = (e0)B^2 / 2(me) = 8.85E-12 x ...
