When you say vacuum gap, what exactly do you mean. Is this a gap in an
air tight container with all the air sucked out or is this some type of
cooling technique. I was under the impression that sparks create
x-rays when created in the presence of a vacuum. If this is what it
is, what type of shielding do you use? At one time I was thinking
about implimenting a gap surrounded by a vacuum, but abandoned it as
too dangerous. Thanks alot.
