Re: Sorlox - FRC nautilus compressor

Uhm, I think you are confused. General Fusion does not do colliding beam. That would be MSNW and Tri Alpha. These use magnetic fields to do the compression. Besides Sorlox only has one plasmoid, not two. If you take a look on the General Fusions FPA presentation from last year on page 4 of this lin...

Re: Sorlox - FRC nautilus compressor

Is there any 3rd party review to back up the claims these guys are making? Unfortunately not. But if you look on the other projects that are using colliding compact toroids (CT), like General Fusion they basically are trying to do the same thing as Sorllox, that is to create a CT and shoot it into ...

Re: General Fusion in the news

Carl, I have no idea how much we'll know. Tri Alpha and EMC2 (Polywell) are certainly keeping quiet. I can only guess that GF is following suit. I would disagree with that Tri Alpha Energy is keeping quiet. As I posted earlier they have a massive amount of contributions at next weeks 55th Annual Me...

Re: Convergent Scientific Incorporated news

Was I the only one from this site to attend? The meeting used Citrix and it was easy to ask questions. CSI has a working polywell run continuous rather than pulsed like EMC2. They have had their machine running since Jan 2012. Magnet strength is 0.1T, but they are only using 1kv for their drive vol...

Here are the posts that I could find on the Fusor.Net forums by Martijn Rambonnet on the fusors that they have built. They have acquired some good equipment in their lab and they are really serious on building a Polywell. Introduction by Martijn Rambonnet » Thu Mar 17, 2011 11:56 am http://www.fusor...

Re: Convergent Scientific Incorporated news

Why will CSI’s Polywell design work when others won’t? So, they are saying that EMC2's design won't work? As far as I know, WB-8 (according to the sole source memo earlier this year) works and proves scaling. October 22 is not that far away... Hopefully they can get enough funding to be able to com...

Re: Radiant Matter Research - The Polywell In The Neatherlan

crowberry, as I understand it, LPP has a large issue, which is how to convert the xrays to useable energy, and I believe this is necessary to economically produce power for them. They have the onion as the proposed device to make that conversion, but I don't know if it has been verified as able to ...
