Microwave Plasma Chamber – Part 3 – What is Plasma? Experiments planned

Plasma Thumbnail

Most people are familiar with 3 states of matter being solid, liquid, and gas but a lot of people are not familiar with the 4th. The fourth state of matter is plasma defined as an ionized gaseous mixture consisting of highly charged positive ions and free electrons (negative charge) that … Continue reading

Microwave Plasma Chamber – Part 2 – RF Energy Shielding Primer

There’s a lot of in-depth overview random basic RF information. With that said I don’t mind getting into the details because this information will help keep me safe while I perform experiments in the future. A magnetron generates large amounts of RF energy and emits that energy as an antenna pumped through … Continue reading

Microwave Plasma Chamber – Part 1 – The Plan

Normally I throw together a project with rough notes, research along the way, then after half attempts/failures I get around to cooking that down to a post on here. This time you will get everything. With this project I will be posting my ideas, planning, results of research and the project … Continue reading

RF Blocking Glass

One step closer to the next round of plasma chamber experiments!! I got samples of RF blocking glass panels in from Viracon. This stuff is really cool. Check out the video below for how it works. The next step will be running some tests, prepping a microwave and building an RF … Continue reading
