corona rectification paper

Hi all,

	I sent a note to Richard Hull about this paper, but thought others 
would be interested too. It may have some bearing on the rectification 
effects you all see, though there are certain differences:

" A cold cathode rectifier" by Willard H Bennett - Journal of Applied 
Physics, Volume 18, May 1947, page 479.

I think I orignally found the reference for this paper in Craggs' and Meek's 
High Voltage Laboratory Technique.

Abstract: A cold cathode rectifier is described in which corona discharge 
is used at atmospheric and higher pressures in hydrogen and nitrogen free 
of electron-attaching impurities....
