The outer sphere is made of, for example, stainless
steel, good closed and strong to support a near
Inside this sphere we releas a little
bit hydrogen that will be ionized because of the voltage between the
first grid and the second grid.
Perhaps a plasma will be created as drawn in fig. 3
(similar like in a traditional fusor, but not in the centre, but
spherical around the second grid?). Experiment should demonstrate this.
In this plasma the hydrogen ions move with all kind of velocities. Some
ions will obtain a very high velocity. Only these high speed ions
will be able to cross the third grid.
These high speed ions will assemble
inside the fourth grid, like in a traditional fusor, but the difference
with a traditional fusor is (if I am not wrong), that the H+ ions move
with (a lot?) higher velocities.
If the fourth grid is made of a boron compound,
will the hydrogen ions have enough speed to cause a fusion reaction with
If there are fusion reactions, will there be
generated more energy than the energy losses. (energy losses caused by
thermal collisions with the grids)???
Boron hydrogen fusion reaction:
115B + 11H
-> 3 42He + 8,68 MeV
(one of the
"nicest" fusion reactions, because no noxious neutrons are produced)
Instead of hydrogen also deuterium gas could be
used to obtain a deuterium-deuterium fusion reaction.
An idea is to construct a fusor with a
couple of inner grids and do experiments, trying out :
Different voltage configurations, with
Van der Graaff generators and/or normal Voltage supply, with hydrogen
ions and boron (solid and ions), with deuterium ions, even trying out
alternating voltages (ac) between the grids ect.
But I have the feeling that probably
the first spherical plasma will not be formed, and/or the energy losses
caused by collisions are far bigger than the (maybe) production of
energy. And the voltage configurations as drawn in fig. 3 are possible?
The first grid could be given a high
positive voltage, but this will not cause an electric field inside this
grid (Gauss law). If the second grid is negatively charged, then this
will yes cause an electic field between the first and second grid.
Only some brainstorming and itīs fun to think
