My Polywell Blog

Polywell Fans, I have a Modest Polywell Blog available. I have been (am still) working on a review of Dr. Todd Riders' general critique of inertial electrostatic fusion devices. I have 30+ pages of this document written, about 75% of the article reviewed. My idea is this: Take the main paper arguing...

NEW BLOG POST ON ELECTRONS INSIDE POLYWELL

Hello, The Polywell Blog --- http://thepolywellblog.blogspot.com/ --- Has posted its latest post on Electron flow inside the device. It looks at Six issues in the device: 1. Electron recirculation – Where are they travelling? 2. Electron recirculation – When are they moving fast? When are they movin...

Ok

Dan, So when two ions collide one of four things can happen: 1. The ions bounce off one another, this is called a coulomb collision. 2. The ions bounce off one another AND a photon is created. 3. The ions pulverize one another, like in atom smashers. 4. The ions fuse. What is the difference between ...

Looking for a good definition of the Collumb Logarithm

Hello, I have been looking for sometime now for a solid definition of the Collumb Logarithm. Here is what I understand it as: The columb Logarithm is a way to find the mean free path for an ion in a big cloud of ions. Lets say you have a cloud of ions. You know the density, the charge, the temperatu...

Debye Screening Length

Hello, Just want to point out. Thomas Ligon said: "The debye screening length is about the order of the dense plasma core. This means that every particle and electron can see every other particle and electron." Everything can see everything else. That means, that if you were going to make ...

A simple ion-ion collision question

Hello everyone, Say you have two deuterium ions. They each have the same energy. Say they slam into one another and Do not fuse. 1. Can a photon or x-ray be produced? 2. Is there a reference that says: particle 1 leaves with (x - 25) and particle 2 leaves with (x + 25) based on the angle of collisio...

Some Rough Ideas which need refining into a formal blog post

Hello guys, Looking for feedback on the following post: ============ The following are the first generation DD reactions: D + D --> (Tritium at 1.01 MeV) + (Proton at 3.02 MeV) D + D --> (Helium3 at 0.82 MeV) + (Neutron at 2.45 MeV) Each reaction is equally likely to happen. What happens to the prod...

Can I plug this site on another thread?

Hello, I know allot of people just copy and paste their plugs for... all kinds of promotions/startups/alternative technologies on this site. I don't want to be one of those guys. This polywell blog & film is quality information over quantity. For example: My next planned posting is going to be a...
