Physicists have been working since the 1950s on making better "magnetic bottles". Magnetic confinement of plasma has been described as holding jello (the plasma) with rubber bands (the magnetic field). In Tokamaks and related machines, magnets push on the plasma from the outside, while Polywell pull...

For lazy people which don´t want to read the whole report I will extract the most important idea: With WB6 they had FOUR SUCESSFUL EXPERIMENTS in the four times they tried before the machine failure (4 over 4). They shielded the neutron detectors to avoid background noise to interfere in the measure...

I am a member but I haven´t logged on since a long time. I think that site is having very few traffic. It was another trial to interchange ideas about Polywell. Nothing strange is with it. The intention of that group was including just technical info about Polywell , and therefore the administrator ...

I don´t know but it also suprissing for me to find a report about WB-6 in the site:wisc.edu . It could be interesting for finding more data about the four successfull tests with WB-6. These lab notes will make more clear what happened during those experiments.

In their presentation they state that their experimental results are closer to breakeven than those from Polywell or FRC-Colliding Beams. Is it true? Are they using for that comparison the WB-5 results or those obtained with WB-6? For Polywell they use as latest experimental results: n =10^14 (1/cc)...

Joe, It will be great to add the direct interview link to your page of Polywell references. MSimon, thanks for the link Does anybody know about the 100 pages technical paper about Polywell promised by Dr. on the Google video? Has it been released to any technical issue? I agree with Keegan that Anti...

Sad news. My condolences to his family and friends. For sure that in a near future Polywell will work. And he will be happy watching this breakthrough quietly sat in heaven surrounded by many others scientists who changed the world with their discoveries. We should be thanked to him for his great co...

Cuddihy, Yo seem to have been out of this forum for some weeks. Dr. Bussad has received a new research contract awarded by the US Navy in order to built WB-7 and WB-8 to test his previous results ( http://www.talk-polywell.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=128 ). In case of positive results EMC2 may keep on wo...

Bussard´s technical paper compilation

In Google video Bussard stated that he was writing a 100 pages report about his research and discoveries on IEC fusion and Polywell. Does anyone know if he is going to publish this paper soon? Maybe with these new contract he has changed his mind? It will be great to see all his knowledge been relea...

Does it reach to any useful conclusion about break-even/confinement/....? If someone has had a look to it please make a short summary (2-3 lines)

The same as Bussard stated in his Google video.

Polywell = Non-Maxwellian plasma. Hence does not thermalise to any major degree

So the energy looses are not so big as those calculated by Rider
