New finding may explain heat loss in fusion reactors

New finding may explain heat loss in fusion reactors Solving a longstanding mystery, MIT experiments reveal two forms of turbulence interacting. Summary: A new computer model finds that electrons are more important in plasma interactions than previously believed. A simulation of more than 10 million...

Re: zero porosity high precision silicon carbide stereo lithography

I'm not current in the state of the art of magnets but this article from 2014 says that superconducting permanent magnets have reached 17.6 teslas http://www.popsci.com/article/technology/superconductor-traps-strongest-magnetic-field-yet The article mentions that the brittle composition of the magne...

Re: zero porosity high precision silicon carbide stereo lithography

Oops.. It is.. Other articles didn't. But they didn't say just how hard it is.

zero porosity high precision silicon carbide stereo lithography

http://www.labnews.co.uk/news/3d-printed-ceramics-breakthrough-15-01-2016/ A method to 3D print structurally sound ceramic as well as heat resistant varieties was thought impossible – until now. Silicon oxycarbide, a ceramic, was successfully created by Californian researchers and was found to be ab...

Just more powerful magnets

Is the practicality of most fusion designs down to how powerful the available electromagnets are? Smaller gyroradii and longer containment times... If you could somehow make a 200 Tesla magnet (forget if it is possible) would practical fusion plants be popping up as fast as fission designs did in th...

Looks a lot like my magnofusor idea. Too bad it won't work.

Re: A Sequel to The Google Talk

How in the world do you go from atmospheres in to what tokamacs, polywells, and IEC devices use? Are we talking about the fuel dispersion? Fuel plasma I mean. I mean the 100 million degree K plasma. Yeah that stuff. Power increases by the square of the density. So I'm told. Anyway lets say the densi...

Re: A Sequel to The Google Talk

Yup, it means atmosphere. Plasma at fusion temperatures and enough pressure to blow a locomotive boiler, bucking against a 5T field that could pull you and your wrench in from across the room. Magnetic pressure = plasma pressure, i.e. beta = 1. Versus beta = 0.03 for a tokamak in an early slide? An...

What does atm mean? Surely it can't mean atmosphere...
