Got a question about Eric Lerner's DPF? I'll ask him!

Point out news stories, on the net or in mainstream media, related to polywell fusion.

To error is human... and I'm very human.

Why does he think his approach will work better than all the previous DPF experiments that concluded it wasn't a route to viable fusion power? Is it just that little 'twist'? Is that really going to make such a big difference it'll jump the gap of viability?

Also, say more [practically] about this X-ray power conversion idea.

The dinner is over and I had a nice opportunity to sit and chat with Eric and one of his employees, Abdelmoula Haboub. Very cordial dinner. I sat next to Abdel and he took time to answer all my questions.

I didn't have time and the balls to monopolize Eric with all the questions, but I did ask a few. I would've loved to interview him and record his answers, but the informal atmosphere and the drinks kept me from doing so. Anyways, here's the general idea:

1) Electrode Erosion

Eric didn't seem to think this would be a problem as long as they were kept cold, like minus 700 or 800. He didn't say how he planned to do this.

2) Neutron Count

They have already been getting a good count, but because they haven't calibrated their machines yet they've been getting two different results. He says a reliable count will be available soon.

3) Abdel didn't mention any measurements to support bremstrahlung suppression but seemed confident it was under control.

4) When asked, Abdel answered he honestly doesn't know what Eric has in mind for direct X-ray conversion.

Yes, I know this isn't much in terms of answers. I'm hoping to have a chance to talk to him more about DPF in the future. Eric might give a presentation at CUNY next spring. If he does, you can bet I'll be there with a voice recorded and more of your questions.

In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.
