Here is a thumbnail of how the D-T fusion reactor in a blanket would be configured. Background D + D -> T + p + 4.0 MeV D + D -> He + n + 3.3 MeV D + T -> He + n + 17.6 MeV T + T -> He + 2n + 11.3 MeV Breeding n + 6Li -> T + He n + 7Li -> T + He + n The Polywell fusor in composed of hollow diamond c...

One point to keep in mind is that the guys used to design ink jet print heads. A similar mechanical problem. I wish them the best of luck. Tom Edison changed his world by trial and error, you never can tell. The important concept is to verify the concept of compressing D-T to fusion using a shock w...

http://www-ferp.ucsd.edu/LIB/PROPS/PANOS/lipb.html Here above are some Lithium-Lead GENERAL PROPERTIES that will make the general fusion inc. simulations more realistic ( if they read this thread). One area of concern is the drop in coolant density as its temperature rises. To get 33% efficiency, a ...

Sorry, it is not a bad as I thought. I was mislead by the simulation where General fusion used pure lead as the reactor coolant. That simualtion is misleading. Yes, they actually use Lithium-Lead (17Li-83Pb). The Lithium Lead provides 17% lithium as the moderator to slow the fast neutrons down. Most...

High all This is my first post here and I hope that you will permit me to join this discussion of the General Fusion inc. approach. I have found a few problems in the design but they can be fixed. The first design problem is described below as follows: Reference: http://teachers.web.cern.ch/teachers...
