I decided to repeat Joe’s experiment. Although challenging it seemed possible to achieve. I dubbed this endeavor the Sydney Experiment.
It took far longer than I expected to fabricate all the necessary parts for the experiment.
Today with great pleasure I ran the Sydney Experiment. Here we see what appears to be electron confinement:
This acquisition shows the floating potential of the langmuir probe.
This run was done with air plasma at 10 millitorr :
The electron gun was running 10KvDC @ 6.5mA:
The coil power supply was charged to ~ 400VDC:
This is just a first run. Now begins the actual experimentation and data gathering.
I do believe this is the WORLD’S FIRST AMATEUR POLYWELL!!!
