IEC 2010: 12th US-Japan Workshop --UPDATED

Postby TallDave » Mon Oct 04, 2010 4:40 pm

I was told by UWM's Fusion Technology Institute that it takes place in October in Japan, does anyone else have any additional info? I haven't been able to find anything.

It doesn't show up on their calendar yet.

Last year's event had some good stuff.

n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...

About a week ago, I also tried to find some information by Googling and looking at several of the University sites, but I found nothing.

I thought they went to a different site each year, and it is not neccessarily in October, but is in the fall. I do not know where it will be this year, but given Dr. Nebel's involvement on more than one occasion, I would assume he will somehow be involved again.

I asked about attending and was told Japan in October. I could conceivably attend as part of a trip to the Philippines, but I probably won't.

I hope we get a nice summary with ppts and pdfs like last year.

Got a website for it:

http://www.plasma.ee.kansai-u.ac.jp/iec2010/

Information is still a bit sparse; I'm told by organizers things aren't yet finalized.

Joel Rogers will be there, as will Carr, Cornish and Khachan from the land down under. Several names from Wisconsin as well. Don't see Rick or any names I know from EMC2 on there, at least as of yet.

Thanks to Joel Rogers for steering me in the right direction.

Sweet!
Can't wait to see Joel's new report and the Aussies as well.

Thanks for the link TallDave, not much info but better than nothing :)

I wonder if someone from EMC2 will pop up at the last minute in the partecipants lists....

A bit off topic but maybe this will interest you.

Ah!!.. Thomas Valone running the future energy session, the maverick patent examiner... a fine example of gamekeeper turned poacher...

I understand the phrase, I'm just not sure if I correctly get the context you are intending ... is this a good or bad thing, in your opinion?

Looks like this wraps up today:

http://www.plasma.ee.kansai-u.ac.jp/iec2010/

No one from EMC2 made the trip apparently, but we do get some notes from the Aussies on their mini-Polywell, which I think is the only one operating outside of EMC2 (iirc Suppes is still working on a fusor atm):

Lastly, we will present equations for the magnetic field structure inside a Polywell in closed form.


i wonder if that includes a description of the famed Wiffleball boundary?

Thanks!

Something new to read at last.
Let's see if there is some hidden goodies inside :twisted:

I suggest everyone gets a good read to Joel Rogers presentation.
He suggest that Q scales at power 3 of the radius instead of Bussard idea that Q scales at the 5th power of the radius. He than proceeds to estimate a reactor size of 150 meters for Break even....

Quite an interesting read.
