Making plasma in a vacuum chamber? Answered
Im having trouble generating any kind of plasma and i guess not fully understanding this.
Heres my setup:
A metal pot with a Plexiglas lid as vacuum chamber. a pressure gauge on top
A vacuum chamber
A MOT as the power supply. Dont have equipment to measure high voltage but id guess around 2KVAC as thats what i understand is standard
Two terminals about 2 inches apart inside of the chamber made from copper. one coming from the top, one from the bottom.
I hook up the terminals , hear the nice MOT buzz, but nothing happens inside of the chamber. The mot has been tested and does work.
Any clue or direction to point me in?
