Progress Update

30 06 2009

Deez and I were in the lab yesterday. We got new tanks for our oxyacetylene rig, and thinner bronze brazing rod.  We completed brazing the outer grid, and attached a lead to the inner grid. I’ve got ceramic insulating tube on order at Mcmaster. Next step is attaching the inner grid to the high voltage feedthrough – this presents some mechanical and electrical challenges.





High Voltage Divider

Just purchased this Model V1G high voltage divider. This device divides the input voltage by a factor of 1000, so we can measure high voltage with a regular multimeter.





Traveling

I’m currently traveling around the east coast visiting family I haven’t seen in a long time. I’ve bought my ticket out to toorcamp, and will be heading out on June 30th. I’ll be posted at notacamp.

Photo Triggering

The Camera Axe may be useful for capturing images (or otherwise triggering meters/instruments) for brief events. For example in the pulsed operation mode of a copper coil polywell.
