Plasmoid contamination in a Dense Plasma Focus

  1. So I've been researching Dense Plasma Focus devices for a while now and a question just occured to me. Since the fill gass such as deuterium is being ionized and then compressed and fused in the Plasmoid, wouldn't some of the cathode material also be ionized and the trapped in the Plasmoid polluting it? If this is the case what equations would you use to calculate the number of cathod material atoms trapped in the Plasmoid in moles?

    See Dense Plasma Focus (http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dense_plasma_focus)

    I'm sorry you are not generating any responses at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us? Any new findings?
     
  4. Ahh don't worry I got my question answered on another thread. The answer is yes the particles to contaminat the Plasmoid now im trying to figure out how to calculate how many.
