This is why the collector needs to be negatively charged.

Where would the diode go and what sort of specification capacitor/s and diode do you think would suit the circuit?

Is there a thread on any of these small devices? It would be interesting to know whether they were negatively charged, their surface area and elevation.

I know that the surface area of the collector and its height are very important.

An interesting notion is that the monolith inside a catalytic converter has a surface area of approx 500,000 square meters.

There is a lot of surface area on a coil, much more than a plate of the same size.

Which patent do you refer to?

Cheers
