pB11: Hydrogen Boron fuel

Nuclear fusion has the potential to generate power without the radioactive waste of nuclear fission, but that depends on which atoms you decide to fuse. Conventional fusion approaches work with deuterium and tritium (DT), while focus fusion works with hydrogen and boron eleven (pB11).

Decaborane Handling Issues:  Design Modifications for pB11 Fusion Research

Aug 02, 2010

LPPX is starting to plan for the modification of the chamber to use the decaborane gas.  For this purpose, the chamber has to be heated and has to be maintained at 100-120oC to keep the decaborane gas from condensing.  A separate chamber is needed to store the solid decaborane.  Several other design modifications are required such as protection of the pumping system against fouling by boron particles.

Below is an email string that addresses issues related to decaborane handling.
