So here are some current calculations I’m using for the chamber.  The
radius of the confinement chamber is roughly the size of the gyro radius of the
deuterium ion with 10 kilo electron volts in a 3800 gauss field.  The
system is operating below the 10 cm radius limit given by Bussard, but it will
at least give me some room to maneuver inside the vacuum.  I won’t be
starting anywhere near 20 KeV, but that is the upper limit of the design.

Magnetic Field Strength
(gauss)

3,800

Electron Energy
(electron volts)

20,000

 

Particle

Gyro Radius
(centimeters)

Electron 0.1256
D+ 7.5827

Had a lot of work to do today and got home late, so not much more fun… :(
