3 Breaking the Coulomb barrier by electrostatic acceleration of ions?

  Sitemap   Just some ideaīs....

(3e idea)

A device that selects only H+ ions with enough high speed to cause a nuclear fusion with the boron of the fourth inner grid.
(will not work, only brainstorming..)

Fig. 3 Schematic cross section (each circle is a cross section of a sphere).

The outer sphere is made of, for example, stainless steel, good closed and strong to support a near vacuum inside.

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 the boron?

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 about this...
