A bit more info on the experiments:
- The system was _always_ coupled during secondary spark production.
Quench _never_ occurred until most of the energy had dissipated in
the gap or secondary streamers.
- Ring frequency was about 1.1Mhz. One-way transfer time was 1.6uS
near as, showing k to be around 0.28 (someone had better check my
I ran out of film during the tests. Next film will include
simultaneous display of primary and secondary waveforms under
different load conditions. I will wait until this is done before
forwarding the photos (which have yet to be developed anyway.
