DIY Mass Flow Controller Interface

June 29, 2017 at 1:45 pm

When the Fusor is in operation, it’s useful to know how much deuterium is entering the chamber for data collection purposes. Having some control over this flow is vital for exact operation of the Fusor. This is where a mass flow controller comes in to play, which both measures and […]

Moving On Up

April 13, 2015 at 8:00 pm

Encouraging news guys!  It looks like I’ll be able to move the Fusor to the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG).  There’s quite a ways to go yet, but I expect this to work out.   NUIG is the most convenient place for me, speaking in terms of distance to […]

Procrastination and Fusion Nation

March 23, 2015 at 10:19 pm

Here I am again, returned after another long absence.   I haven’t been writing/blogging recently due to two things, one fairly large reason and the other more of a petty obstacle, I’ll start with the latter.     I sat my Junior Certificate Mock exams from January 29th – February […]

Some News

January 5, 2015 at 9:47 pm

I’m back from my 4+ month hiatus from updating this site…   A lot has happened since my last post (early September) and other than my Twitter, there’s been no mention of it on this site.  From now on, I’m going to focus on getting shorter, more frequent updates posted, […]

Batch of New Parts

September 5, 2014 at 11:02 pm

It’s been quite a while since my last post, but lots of new parts.  All the main parts (pumps, chamber, power supply, deuterium, neutron detection system) have either arrived or are ordered, meaning that all that is left are some small parts which are mostly on the way too.  Everything […]

More Parts And Funding Achieved!

August 5, 2014 at 3:39 pm

Great news – I received a donation last Friday which was enough to fulfil the funding goal of €10,000!  This is brilliant news as it means the Fusor build should be relatively smooth from here on.  Thanks again to every single person who has made this possible – all those […]

Visit To Trinity

August 3, 2014 at 9:00 pm

Last Wednesday (30/7/2014) I went to Trinity College Dublin to visit the Applied Physics research group there and made a presentation on the Fusor.  I organised the visit through Professor Igor Shvets (who has recently been elected to head of physics in Triniy) who was very gracious in allowing me […]

Funding To Date

Parts Arrived!

July 19, 2014 at 6:52 pm

It’s been too long since my last post – the work involved in fundraising leaves little time! However, since the last post, quite an amount of funds have been raised (post on that coming) and I’ve started buying parts.  Those that have arrived so far are the PEM cell, a […]

New Video!

June 14, 2014 at 7:04 pm

Cian sent me the new video today and it’s a huge improvement over the previous video…In itself the video’s excellent!  Cian’s twitter is @CianLR if anybody wants to get in touch with him and Shane  – they made the the video. On the crowd funding front, it’s going well.  While […]
