Grounding and Shielding of electric circuits

There are two purposes for the grounding and shielding of electric circuits. The first purpose is safety. The second purpose is to reduce electromagnetic interference. The ground of a circuit is the part of the circuit that is defined as zero volts. However, it is only meaningful to talk about the difference in voltage between […]

Print Electronics on Your Finger

We were able to develop a silver nanowire ink that allows conductive traces to be printed immediately. There’s no post-processing that’s required. That allows for printing on a leaf or on human skin or various different delicate biological substrates. So in our lab we have arrayed various different inks made out of nanomaterials. That allows […]

Lethal Electric Arcs (MOT Jacobs ladder)

You can look, but don’t touch. These arcs of plasma are lethal enough to kill on contact! In this project we’re using an old microwave oven transformer to extract these traveling electric arcs. In a previous video, I found a microwave in my neighbors garbage can, and salvaged this iron core high voltage transformer. This […]
