Forget the request. I see it has been abundantly answered in other
posts I hadn't read at the time I replied.
I suppose that one point of interest remains: can one possibly
do better with a coil having no topload and the same Ctot as a coil
with topload? I'm betting not, mainly due to ionization clamping. So
now I guess we're at the point when we figure out just what it takes
to burn air efficiently - i.e. what is the best you can possibly do
for some given figure of E x BPS? I suppose even this is passe - one
can do wondrous things if BPS is a fraction and E is huge!
Bearing that in mind, what goals do we aim for now? Fixed E and
the best you can otherwise do etc.? I am beginning to feel some
lassitude coming on.
