Electrode resisitivity
« on: July 10, 2017, 20:25:58 pm »
Hello I just thought about the resistivity of our electrode and how it will influence the electric force and current distribution at the cell

Check the drawing

Basically having a long electrode and applying the power at one side only will cause a voltage drop over its length... if we get a second electrode where the ground is applied

Now having a third electrode would cause the resistive electrode to cause a second current to flow

  • Build it. Power it. Use it.

That kind of voltage distribution might be advantageous when using the lengthwise resonance. Or even accelerating ions.

It's doubtful that rod resistance would be suitable for use as the choke's current limiting resister.  That resistance slows the choke capacitor's discharge to 20 percent remaining by the next charging pulse.  Each pulse from the choke will then be 20 percent higher than its prior pulse.  So the value of the choke resister must be carefully calculated, or determined experimentally.
