Re: A letter to Newbie about the Polywell

I know this is an old thread, but only one post in it ... so fair game? I've posted some wild ideas on talk-polywell from time to time - just to let people know, I'm the 'admin' at protonboron.com ... so, don't think I'm designing reactors or anything critical over there! :lol: I'm just their villag...

Re: superconductor quenching at high Beta

So the plasma is pushing the electrical field that in turn is pushing on the B-field that in turn is pushing on the magnet and it's housing ... so rapid pulsing in plasma pressure is not going to be translated instantly, but rather would be felt as an overall but smaller increase in force on the mag...

Re: superconductor quenching at high Beta

With cusps another consideration is the area of the cusp holes. It essentially narrows to the smallest diameter at Beta of 1, but then begins opening up again.I have used an analogy of two funnels with collecting cones facing away from each and the spouts touching each other. Once Beta=1 is exceede...

Re: Polywell and Ionocraft

I don't know - maybe the whole first experiment was B.S. I guess unless someone does that test or similar again, then no way to know for sure. Brown did do subsequent tests in a vacuum, but I suspect the scale was inside the vacuum chamber. BTW, it did still work in the vacuum chamber, but the ion-w...

Re: Polywell and Ionocraft

It's not my hypothesis ... it's the Biefeld-Brown effect. It came along well before me - so please don't call it my hypothesis. The electro-gravitics theory was supposedly debunked .. but I can't find where the original experiment was debunked - so it's very curious. Appararently they use a nearly i...

Re: Polywell and Ionocraft

I've been reading on the Biefeld-Brown effect and how it was supposedly debunked as a gravitational effect and now appears to be considered an ion-wind effect by the mainstream ... but ...doesn't Brown's very first experiment with a Coolidge tube (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrogravitics#Origi...

FEL wikipedia fusion pages update effort

The Fusion Energy League and The Polywell Guy are working to update wikipedia fusion pages. We intend to focus on a new page every two weeks. We are hoping to find the support of technically knowledgeable individuals to give us feedback and ideas for each page as we move forward. We will post update...

Thank you for the detailed explanation. It's filtered through my thick skull! lol Seriously though, I very much appreciate your time to explain.

Re: new copper composite

Generally, big resistive lab magnets are made of square copper tubing with coolant running through the center. Attached is a random google image search result of a typical bending magnet for a beamline. For a magnet. all you really care about is the number of amp turns at the end of the day; everyt...

Re: new copper composite

I don't think the size of the wire matters for generating a high magnetic field at least with regular copper. It is amp-turns that gives us a high magnetic field - so high amperage and low turns equals lower amperage and high turns. With normal copper the thicker the wire the more amps you can run t...

Re: new copper composite

My rambling probably is not helping your understanding. Naw ... I'm just an idiot I think. I'll re-read this a few times and do more homework. Your examples sort-of make sense to me ... but I keep thinking powerful pulsed magnet and amp-turns, not high voltage wire. I get that heat output is going ...

Re: new copper composite

I don't think I'm getting this. For whatever strength magnetic field we aim for, we need a certain amount of amp-turns. If this composite wire can carry 100x more current (amps), then we should be able to get by with a lot less copper. So space for cooling can increase, EVEN while overall size of ri...
