Well I'm still working on that. So far I came up with this.
I'll start with 2" clear tube ( not sure how long yet) this tube will be at the center and house the lights.
If you are going to use a UV light source the glass will need to be quartz or some other material that will not filter UV.

Thanks, I didn't think about that. I was planning on using acrylic for the inner tube but I could use the case the light comes in If I us uv which I probaly will

Well it looks like a quartz tube won't be to hard to get a hold of so I'll go with that.
I forgot to mention but I'm sure you guys got it without me telling you. The gass I'm trying to ionize is between the inner and outer tube in contact with the positive electrode

Dave,

Again, how are you gonna test the effect of the setup?

Sorry I guess I misunderstood, I'll test the gas by displacement. Did you see Russ Gries's burn rate testing?. I plan on using a similar setup. If it works I'll try to test heat as well.

Ok.

How about the possible reaction of electrons with the metal of an engine?
How about the re-combination time of h and o ?

I mean, listening to a bang is not very specific and takes time, etc.
If you understand what i mean.
If you want to run an engine with help of an ionizer, i think you should first run an engine without one.

There would be a lot of things to do before running an engine with the ionized gas if I can produce it. First I need to test how powerful the gas is by displacement, not listening to the bang. Also, I'm going to have to test how much ambient air I need to mix in to produce a responsible temp.

But yes, I'll be testing with just hho in the engine to learn what I can.

As far as the effect of these ions on the engine. I don't really know. I think its important to burn the ionized gas before it starts to lose the light energy it has picked up. I don't know how long positive ions will last in an engine.
I ordered a quartz tube and I am thinking about using a bulb designed to kill algae in pools and ponds. I'm also thinking about trying xenon bulbs.

Hi dave,

I didnt want to play the bad guy here. I just wanted to push you in the right direction.
The other reason for testing an ionizer on an engine is the vacuum thats produced and in which the ionizing proces works better.

In my tests without the engine running, i didn't see any improvements.
But maybe your proces is a better one :)
So, go on! Looking forward to read more of you in this matter. 8)
