My mind drifted off on a tangent again today (as it does)
As we should now understand, according to Ground Potential there are no Coloumb forces between particles (read my paper. http://vixra.org/abs/1408.0158
What we perceive as forces between protons, is relative velocity (according to GP). this relaitive velocity is a simple function of c*(Ø/Øp).
We quickly calculate that protons move at 2.6 million meters per second, relative to observers at ground potential, now concider also that a proton exists in a frictionless world with total deflection, and it is easy to understand why it is near impossible to fuse two protons together. Deuterium moves quite a bit slower, so fusing two deuterons is slightly easier, but still near impossible to do with any real success (trust me I have tried).
Obviously these particles carry an enormous amount of kinetic energy and wouldn't it be nice to harness some of that for our day to day needs. Well maybe there are ways to do it.
The maximum amount of energy we can ever hope to extract from a proton is around 8 Mev, this is the kinetic energy that must be lost in order to bring the proton to a standstill at ground potential, and the only way to do this is to capture it inside an Iron or a Nickel nucleus.
Stopping a proton travelling at 2.6 million m/s is a lot harder than it sounds, first of all there is no friction forces, and secondly collissions are rare and absorb relatively little energy.
In the table below, I have calculated the virtual velocities of the stable elements lighter than Nickel, and you can see they progressively become slower as the mass per nucleon falls towards Nickel.
Hypothetically, if one had a multi layered target, starting with light alloys at the surface, progressively becoming heavier, one could fire protons into this target, thereby attempting to step down the velocity, and thermalise them by progressive collissions with heavier and heavier nuclei, to a point where they come to rest and fuse somewhere in the iron or nickel nuclei and stay there.
This process if it works, might convert the kinetic energy of the particles into excess heat in the target, further this kind of reaction, might not produce much high energy radiation, as the particle velocity is stepped down gradually, but should produce some measurable bremsstahlung.
There are very good models out there, which allow us to calculate how far into various metals a particle will embed itself, so such an experiment is certainly possible. I imagine building up a target by applying multi layered ion coatings to a nickel target.
Food for thought...
