Three Stage

This three stage Marx was a pre-design, that is, it was used to work out the bugs in the charge pump and gaps before I build a ten stage. First picture below is the charge pump bumping the voltage up from 4kv  to 30kv. The second and third pictures are the little three stage Marx Generator and the last picture is a animated gif of Marx firing. Tab on pictures to enlarge or to run animated gif!
