@spacecase0,

The problem the magnetic coupling creates is the disruption of current through the axle. The rotating anode would need a seperate internal power connection with the detached bearings. Still a pretty good idea, not counting the drag.

We need someone to test the strength of the "Plasma Vortex" counter rotating magnetic field. Just twirling a piece of aluminum foil positioned in adjacency to the "Vortex" would act as a strong proof of concept.

I may need to buy and disassemble a used microwave for the magnetron ring magnets.
