Subject: Microwave caps, ideas (fwd)

I once used a microwave capacitors and diodes in a voltage multiplier
configuration. i.e. taking output of microwave transformer to produce +/-
5Kv i.e. 11KV potential.   For this type of supply to be useful you  have to
limit the output current with either an inductor or resistor.  If you don't
limit the output the diodes blow really easily.

Here is a similar system using smaller capacitors.  With this type of power
supply you also have to be careful not to destroy the output inductors
