  1. Since high school (about 25 years ago) I have always wanted to make a CRT from a Vacuum Filtration Flask. After viewing Nyle Steiners project, I was inspired to give it a try. Below is a photo of the project and the link is to my youtube video of the same project. Over the next several weeks, I plan on making a new electron gun with a more focused beam. Furthermore, the copper anode in the one pictured has caused a messy sputtering issue. Aluminum or stainless will be employed in the newer version. Once done, the new video will have both deflection coils activated with a signal generator. Mark
  2. Here is a youtube link to my replication of silicon based plasma. On the first video, excuse the music. I was testing out my video editor at the same time.
  3. Richard, You are refering to a completely different experiment. The one you are refrencing has been popularized by youtube. Here is the link: If you watch the video in the first link, it is clear the have very little in common. I specifically need information related to the Russian "St Petersburg" experiment or the replication experiment done by the Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics. Mark
  4. Hello all. This is my first post here. I am currently taking a break on my Fusor endeavors and have now decided on some ball lightning experiments. I decided to reproduce the St. Petersburg water discharge experiment as depicted in the affixed URL address. So far, I have been unsuccessful. My capacitor bank is currently at 7.9 uf with a discharge voltage of approx 9kv. I ramped up the current to almost 16uf with no change. Just a louder report. (It should be noted that the capacitance range in prior successfull tests have been from .5 to 25uf) I have even gone through a full range of brine solutions thinking that may have played a part in this. No luck. Here is my question: Has anyone here been able to replicate this experiment ? If so, what was you set up ? Specifically, how is the center positive electrode constructed and placed in the brine solute ? Any help would be much appreciated. Here is the link: http://www.ipp.mpg.de/ippcms/eng/presse/pi/05_06_pi.html Mark
