The counts and its result as total neutron emission depends on the duration of the test and the percentage of surface you scan of the total emitting surface. In case of WB-6 the test took 0.25 milliseconds long. The made three other tests at lower voltages and they also got neutrons. I don´t know th...

To look for a patent I like to use "Google Patents". You can even download it as PDF

Also you can use the USPTO page

Strange, but very interesting to investigate about these experimental results. We will see ...

It is true that in a donut shape there won´t be a radial confinement (undestanding radial toward the center of the toroidal), but Hanelyp is right in thinking that there will be a confinement toward the center-section of the torus: it is like a potential well but having the negative peak with a circ...

The oldest democracy on the planet is established in Iceland ( since the 10th century). I don´t want to put more wood into the fire. With this short post I stop replying in this thread. I am here to talk about Polywell. I only want to see Polywell working as a champ. If Polywell works it will be the...

I am sorry fo getting you mad. It wasn´t my intention. But you have shown a hidden side without big cause (only read again my previous post to see my subject) . I am glad you internally feel proud of being american, this is the big thing of your country, your identity maked up in just nothing more t...

Sorry...but I thought that Polywell was an improvement for all the mankind, not only for the US... as I have realized right now reading your posts about paying you money in case of success. Now I really hope any other country make it working before the US. I have seen a double personality: in one fa...

Basically, for tuning purposes you adjust: * The proportional gain to give more or least speed to your control depending on the process variable, PV, response to a change in the valve opening (output process signal, OP). For huge responses you need an small gain, for little response you need a high ...

The classical equation of PID is almost useless nowadays in the chemical industry. The error in the derivative term means a bump in the valve opening in every setpoint change (because in that moment the derivative of the error becomes infinity). For that reason is used a derivative term over the pro...

Hanelyp, I don´t understand you clearly. Are you referring to create an electric field in the magnets by induction from other external fluctuating magnetic field? Can you explain how would be designed that reactor? Also its advantages because at the end you have to support physically the reactor (ex...

It seem quite interesting!!!. Congratulations!! I am not an expert but maybe it could reduce even more the electron loosses because the recirculated electrons will go always around the inner part of each magnet. If the electron lifetime is increased it would be a perfect candidate to get net power. ...
