Marks of EVO action on cathode in “Cardioid Infarction experiment”
Note the core, the surrounding more circular area and the often differently affected polygonal area surrounding that. Note also that EVOs close to each other may distort the field structures of their neighbours.

Impact marks of EVOs on Silicon Dioxide anode stem sheath
Because of the momentary nature of the impact on the SiO2 of the anode sheath and often non-interaction of multiple EVOs at once (individual impacts), it can be easier to determine the various influences of the EVOs’ sub-structure more clearly.
Note, in most of these images, there appears to be little deposit in the strike mark, which implies that the EVOs were perhaps made mostly of gas ions or that the mark is just the damage caused by the EVO as it was repelled by the dielectric SiO2 as that became charged by the electrons emitted from the EVO.
