Reference sketch

A rough sketch of my understanding of the arrangement of a polywell with direct conversion:
Image

Surrounding the familiar toroid cluster magrid is a spherical outer grid. Around that is a shell for the alphas to hit.

The overlaid blue line is a graph of electric potential vs. radius. Voltage is on a logarithmic scale.

An excess of electrons confined by the magrid produce the innermost potential well, which confines fuel ions.

Electron injectors would be placed just inside the dashed line grid. Electrons escaping the wiffleball, unless up-scattered, would have insufficient energy to climb the potential hill to reach the grid, and would be directed back to the magrid.

Fusion product ions escaping the wiffleball would be accelerated a bit between the magrid and the outer grid, mostly miss the outer grid, then be slowed climbing the potential difference to the collector shell.

Fuel could be injected as gas from injectors on the inside surface of the magrid, or from ion accelerators at the outer grid.

Near term, cheap, dark horse fusion hits the air waves, GF - TED, LM - Announcement. The race is on.

isnt this a
************************************************************
NUCLEI SQUEEZER machine that uses electrons to squeeze nuclei simply -

which has implications on how many electrons you need per nuclei amount - which has implications on the tesla field
**************************************************************
this is a complete new equation line
can be diagonal line or an exponential function
