I don't have the resources for testing this set of ideas. I would like
some straight-forward opinions as to the probability that this might
work, or why it could not be expected to work.
I'm talking about producing controlled, cold hydrogen fusion by means
of a high frequency electric field within a rarified hydrogen gas
environment. The frequency of this field should be adjusted to match
the resonant frequency of the hydrogen ions/plasma described below.
The setup I am thinking of consists of a round plastic tube, about 2
inches in inside diameter and several inches long. This tube is to
have holes drilled along opposite sides, along two lines that are
parallel to the tube's axis. These holes are 2 inches apart, and each
hole is oriented on a radius from the center of the tube. The holes on
one side do not align with those on the other side of the tube. They
are located on the odd numbered inch marks along one side and on the
even numbered inch marks on the opposite side.
These holes each have a sharp, pointed, non-reactive metallic pin
(probably stainless steel) inserted and sealed in place such that the
pointed tips of the pins reach to the tube's axis. This results in a
row of pointed pin tips along the tube's axis, with alternate pins,one
inch apart, coming in from opposite sides of the tube.
One end of this tube/electrode array is connected to the hydrogen
source (electrolysis setup) via a small controllable orifice. The
other end of the tube is connected to a vacuum pump. The intent is to
control the hydrogen gas pressure within the tube, and also to purge
anything other than hydrogen gas from the tube during the start-up
Next, with the tube filled with rarified, pure hydrogen gas and the
electrode arrays connected to an alternating high voltage power
source, will some of the hydrogen gas molecules be ionized into a
plasma, with the + hydrogen ions being drawn to the tips of the - pins
and repelled from the tips of the + pins? If so, will any of the
hydrogen ion pairs acquire sufficient velocity to cause a fusion to
occur as two ions coming from opposite directions along the tube's
axis reach the vicinity of the pin. I realize that some hydrogen ions
will actually collide with the pins and have their ion charge
neutralized, but some should experience a "near miss" with the charged
pins and end up colliding at a very high velocity, hydrogen ion
against hydrogen ion.
Can this possibly result in a controlled, cold hydrogen fusion process
from time to time?
