Could the title and publisher of the Bazelyan and Raizer book be repeated. I
accidently deleted that entry from mail.

I have recently produced rapid , high voltage,high frequency violet
discharges of 5 mm length to an intervening small insulated water capacity
from a sort of resonant rise of voltage principle obtained from large
inductance coils at 60 hz resonance and wall voltage. My amperage draw to
the device was about 130 ma, but the q of the coil system is only around 30,
supplying only a 3 to 4 thousand volt unobvious, or resonantly choked,
potential to the process. To enable the higher voltages to be shown I
employed a series triple arc gap with the large discharge in the middle
shunted by a capacity to enable breakover or short discharges to develope by
the rapid charging and discharging of that capacity. Is it safe to assume
that this miniature lightening effect is only around 1500 volts, given the
and the quoted 3 kv/cm arc over discharge value or breakdown voltage.
Thanx for any info
