How the Fusion Reactor Works

I have received many questions about how exactly my reactor operates so here is a post explaining it. I may make a video for those who more easily grasp concepts when images are provided.

The concept of fusor operation is much simpler in theory than  in execution. Basically, I pump the bell jar down to a high vacuum, charge the inner electrode (outer one is grounded) to a high negative DC potential.

Field emmition from the grid causes the gas inside (air for non fusion, deuterium (2H) for fusion) the gas ions, as they are positively charged, are accelerated towards the negatively charged inner grid. They carry enough inertia to continue past the grid wires and collide in the center.

The remixing of ions and electrons creates the plasma discharge.

  1. How you have received deuterium (2H) in house conditions???????

    1. you can take water and seporate it into O2 and H2 via electrosis (run an eletrical current throu it). When you do this, the H2 and O2 will go to seporate electrodes. you will end up with twice as much H2 as O2 bc 2H2O-->2H2=O2. This H2 will be over 98% protium (no neutrons) so you will need to build a gas phase centrifudge.
      to do this you will need you will need to spin a sealed container, while heating the bottom, and freezing the top. This will cause the heavier Isotopes to go to the bottom of the container. In order to finalize this division, you can add a very small amount of O2 (around 1% of of H2 added.) then while the centrifuge is running you spark the O2, witch will combust with the H2 closest to it, to form heavy water (water with deutrium in it.)

  2. How can you use this reactor to produce electricity?
