I need some kind of instructions for a Neutron polarizer or a quadrupole magnet. I need some divece to turn ions or alpha particles into electricty directly. If anyone finds something let me know please.

What is it that you are thinking about doing, because it doesn't sound right.
One really easy way is to have your alpha source as one electrode, surround it with e.g. a tin can as the other electrode.

>note this: you need a lot of ions to give you electricity worth even measuring.

Stretch a low level alpha source ( capable of ionizing "air" ) wire between telephone poles along a desert highway.
Then stretch a Procup cable with an embedded magnet between two ferric core bare wires some inches away.
Attach the wires with a series diode on one telephone pole and collect DC whenever the wind blows.

What exactly do you want to do? You've strung a whole bunch of sciency-sounding words together, but they make about as much sense as asking for a recipe for anodized aluminum flavoring for your quick frozen torellini flambe.

If you know what you are trying to accomplish (use a radioactive source to generate electricity), then say that, and maybe some of us with actual degrees in hard science fields can help you.

If you don't know what your goal is, and just want to sound impressive, then be prepared for some serious mockery.

I need some kind of instructions for a anodised aluminium flavouring for me quick frozen torellini? tortellini? flambe.

I know what I'm trying to accomplish (use a flavoured aluminium product to generate electricity In a pasta product), but I don't need your help Doc, as I have certificate IV in Firefighting (how pathetic does that sound?).

I know what my drunken goal is,and I know I don't sound impressive, but I am prepared for some serious mockery.

Sadly, the wisdom which the OP desires was lost with the dematerialisation sinking of Atlantis.
