RE: Low Impedance Negative Resistance Tesla Coils

Yes, it has been tried and it works. I did it back in high school
physics using a
5 Hz tunable LC circuit. The teacher got a flask of liquid nitrogen. We
used a
Heathkit O-scope and sig gen to graph the response curves at room
and with the LC circuit in the nitrogen.

It would be hard to see how to do this with anything but the smallest

Hi Ken,

It would work to an extent, but too much magnetic field and you lose
superconductivity.  Tesla did some work on this, but it was lost in the
fire.  I don't think anyone has tried since.
