    I did think of the Woodpecker along the way, but my primary goal was (and remains) investigation of what's happening with your device. The important implication of what I saw is that there are apparently two distinct modes of wet arc…

    Yes' I'm pretty sure. In the test just done I put a battery-powered GMC directly behind the cell, and it showed nothing above background, while the pancake detector in front of the cell showed about 5x background. So the first thing I…

    Here's a video showing the effect of the triggered arc on radiation measurements. The arc is turned on at 00:40 (14:04:01 on the display clock).

    Not exactly welded together, but stuck in a conducting state for long enough to pop the circuit breaker. The driving signal to the linear motor is a high pass filtered square wave, resulting in a pulse to separate the electrodes…

    First test results with the cell empty of liquid. With the inductor steel core removed, peak-to-peak voltage of 538 volts is seen, with resonant ringing at 5.8 MHz. With the core inserted, the peak voltage is slightly lower and the ringing frequency is…

    Yes, I did the same, but up to 1 hour was needed for the thicker zinc electroplate common on most (Chinese-made) hardware store parts.

    For the first test tomorrow, I want to see if the induced contact arcing will be sustainable while…

    Ready for the next test run, starting tomorrow.

    Thanks to Robert Horst for suggesting this approach.

    The difference between a solenoid and this setup is that the ferromagnetic material of the solenoid directs the B field towards the internal slug and completes the magnetic circuit. With parallel wires, if…

    Here's a video of testing for magnetic attraction between the electrodes. Result: no measurable force.

    Close enough. I measured it as 175 ml when adding the water.

    Yes, the force will be pretty small. However, two things complicate the analysis: the current through the two electrodes is in opposite directions, so the B-fields would oppose rather than attract. And the "wires" are ferrous.…

    can Nice graphs, thanks for that. Counter K is the ROI (Region Of Interest) output from the gamma spectrometer, and was set to 490-520 keV for this test. The first section of the data was meant to be a radiation calibration sample, with the cell…

    Looks good Robert. The BA6020 has both terminations at one end (thus outside of the electrolyte). But the "insulating resin coating" would have to tolerate 0.1 molar HCl at up to 100C. Worth an inquiry. The adhesive used to…

    They are probably neoprene or nitrile (Buna-n). They came in a kit of different sizes from an auto parts store.

    One reason I thought to use these is the Gough-Joule Effect, in which elastomers under tension become tighter when heated.

    The electrodes are pretty toasted. I rinsed the assembly and will let it dry a bit so I can collect the debris when taking it apart.

    The paint on the outer surfaces didn't hold up well, especially the center section where it looks burnt. The rubber…

    Thanks for this good tip. I did actually use SS brackets in my test yesterday. They are "hardware store grade", probably 409 alloy which is 10-12% Cr and less than 1% Ni. So maybe not the best choice but what I had on hand. I…
