"The real trick is to prevent the electrons in the circuit from moving and providing mass "energy dissipation" "

sure sounds familiar...

nice article, Beardon has a following

perhaps this indicates that the resistor sandwich is nonlinar in performance and unlike a linear common resistor???

danka for the read

I'm not sure if I would call it a resistor, per se. A hybrid capacitor or a diode of some sort would be more fitting. Capacitors generally block DC current which is what we want to do. Sort of like step charging a super capacitor, only with much higher volt levels.
