Re: [TCML] Ultraviolet Observations?

Why would you want to be limited to ultraviolet? If you are aiming to
measure the output radiation at the breakout of a high voltage system,
which can produce x-rays if sufficiently powered and designed, then you
will still be missing the active frequency of the output. Of course, if you
were interested in the secondary ionization of the surrounding atmosphere,
ultraviolet could be useful. To maximize the ionization, however, means
having top load capacity in excess of the potential so that no streamers
are produced. I suspect in the case of ionized atmosphere there would be a
visual blob roughly equivalent to the shape of the E field.
