Great news!!!!!!!!!

Prometheus Fusion Perfection has FUSED THE ATOM.

Take a look at the bubbles:

I'm so happy and so excited. This is the start of amazing things!

It's a super-heated gel that is a cunning mixture of freons and other non-disclosed recipes that responds to fast neutrons and is a dosimeter for nuclear workers.

Be careful you're not just measuring background there. You can leave one of these things open for a day and it'll read a couple of bubbles just from cosmic radiations.

What I would say is that it is in keeping with EMC2/Bussard neutron detection rates! :lol:

It's an emulsion of low temperature boiling points halomethanes like R-12 or R-22 (refrigerant liquid) with an ethylene/polyethilene matrix.
This liquid emulsion has the characteristic that keeps his liquid state at a temperature higher than it's boiling temperature, and hence is called "superheated".

I will do another run with better metrics soon. If I can repeat it a few times, we really have it. Still is very exciting seeing that bubble after not seeing it for so long.

Congratulations (I think...) Familus! Way to go! I think its very impressive what youve achieved in such a short space of time, on such a meagre budget. Just goes to show...
Keep the results comming... :)

Uh. One in any given short period (250 uSec) might be background. Three is rather above probability.

On Chris's figure of 2 per day and your time slice of 250 uSec, I make it a 1 in 57600 chance of 3 detections being no more than background.

There are 172,800,000 1/4 mSec in 12 hours.

How did you come up with your probability number?

1-((1-p)^3)

I misread u for m, so the figure should be 1 in 57,600,000.

That sound right. Or at least close enough to zero so that it doesn't matter.

Add to that ~3 tests, means ~ 1 in 150,000,000 (?) chance that all the neutron counts were background. I don't know what the background counts from noise (electronics) would be, but I imagine that it would swamp the natural background counts, eg- a purely made up number- there might ba a 1 in 1000 chance that the counts were all noise.
