Polywell Films

Consider specific people in the fusion research community, business, or politics who should be made aware of polywell research, and how we might reach them.

Polywell Films

Post by mattman »

This film explains the Polywell in 15 minutes. It is organized into 7 sections:

I - 0:00 Introduction
II - 1:23 The Geometry of Bussards Machine
III - 3:54 The Mechanism
IV - 9:13 Plasma Details
V - 11:55 Scale Up
VI -12:27 The Next Step
VII - 13:31 Citations


If you like, you can just watch the mechanism portion (6 minutes). The mechanism has been broken down into 6 steps:

I. 0:10 -- Electrons are emitted, fall to rings
II. 0:45 -- Electrons caught by rings
III. 0:56 -- Electrons trapped by rings
IV. 2:12 -- Cloud of electrons trapped
V. 3:17 -- Deuterium puffed in, ionizes
VI. 4:11 -- Ions fall towards cloud, hit, fuse


Anyone looking to hire a Polywell researcher?
