    The article says that the results of this experiment will be published in Thursday's edition of Nature. I'm sure many of you have subscriptions. Would anybody care to recap?

    I'll check it out tomorrow (assuming it'll be online as of the publication date).

    ZapperZ posted about it in Nuclear Engineering forum.

    Table-top fusion?
    Apparently so - using pyroelectric crystal (Li tantalate) to produce a potential which accelerate deutrons at a deuterated target. Low yield though - 900 n/s.

    That's why Putterman said he's only considering commercializing this as a portable neutron generator.
