    After Eric has completed his testing and shots with the current tungsten cathode/anode configuration, will he take the opportunity to attempt a shot or shots with hydrogen and boron-11? This is before the transition to Beryllium.

    To answer your question, it looks like hydrogen/boron-11 will be tested after the second generation of beryllium electrodes is installed.

    Thank you for the link and response. The noted issues surrounding tungsten and solutions to solve them seem to have set up an interesting state of FF-1. What issues can be anticipated with Beryllium from what has been learned so far from tungsten is an interesting question. Could dust become an issue?
