A CockroftWalton Voltage Multiplier. More at

All in all, though, a voltage multiplier is more handy when you can't just
get a higher voltage transformer. with only 10-20 kV in, you wind up
spending more on diodes and caps than you would on a higher voltage
transformer. The exception is if you are building some sort of switcher.
