Subject: Poly Caps
Richard Quick states in one of his documents:
"The best dielectric for homemade Tesla capacitors
is low density polyethylene plastic."
Now my plastic supplier has easier access to "high density" P/E.
1. Is this better / same / inferior for pulse cap construction ?
2. Is the dielectric constant the same (ie. stated 2.2 but use 2.0 for home
High density PE is quite rigid and would probably work ok for flat plate caps
but is not useable for rolled caps. I believe the dielectric constant is the
