Here's an explanation for the "clumps of gas" in the vacuum chamber. When pressure is decreased in cathode ray experiments (which you were doing by drawing the air out), the cathode ray tube goes from irregular crackling to a horizontal column that stretches from the anode to the cathode. When you decrease the pressure even more, eventually you get something called a Crooke's dark space, negative glow, Faraday dark space and striations. These striations are the "clumps of gas". There are many stages that correspond to different pressures though, so I've only just mentioned the first stage and the stage we're interested in. Also, I'm not an expert in this topic. I am just a high school student who came across electric currents through gases. Please do correct me if I am wrong!

I would say it does not go left but curves first at once on the smallest radiis of the anode. Then it takes a smooth path around in parity as well as direction, so it would radiate, unless we rotated exactly with it or were otherwise to the -|xyzdpi i*i""|^2

Electrons: Lazy photons. Photons: Over-achieving electrons. Einstein almost got it right with his Photoelectric effect work, but he missed the boat! Where are photons emitted? The valance shell! Where are photons detected? The valance shell! Where are photons reflected? The valance shell! What is in the valance shell? Electrons! What is the lasing medium in a free-electron laser? Electrons! What is emitting synchnotron radiation? Electrons! If you sleep with Dogs, you will rise with fleas. If photons and electrons enjoy each others company so much, maybe there is something they are trying to tell us? We can't keep on denying that a photon is merely an electron surfing on its own wake-field! The 'surfer' is jamming to the Lambda beat! When we seen the surfer up on a Curl, we say it has wave properties. When that same surfer 'wipes out', we say it particle properties. Q: Why does a photon have no rest mass? A: Because photons at rest are electrons!

You should have put some florescent behind the anode to see air any of the electrons escape. You can salvage them from old florescent lamps' surface inside. To apply, you need to dissolve the florescent powder in alcohol and let the alcohol vaporize on the surface.

I guess the clumps of energy are standing waves and the arch form is the magnetic path/part of the electric field between the cathode and anode.

Would it be better to have 2 anodes instead of 1, with increasing voltage between the two? For example cathode 0v, anode 10kv, anode 20kv

So it turns out the anode "washer" is only a weak anode compared to the main screen behind. The ring will have something like 1KV above the cathode, where as the anode screen on the far end of the tube is the whole 20KV supply voltage. That is why the ring is not stealing all your electrons and most are going through the hole.

re - 9:25 This is my guess as to what the _Corona-Diamonds_ are: They're visual representations of the ionisation energy of air. The farther away from the cathode they are, the lower energy they receive, so they're in a lower ionisation state. The closer we get to the anode, the more energy they receive, so they're in a higher ionisation state. Hence the first diamond represents the first ionisation energy of air, the second diamond represents the second ionisation energy, etc... Again, that's a GUESS, since I'm an organic chemist and not an electrochemist. If anyone knows for sure what's going on, or even if they just know that I'm wrong, I'd be very interested in finding out. NB: Even in the absolute BEST vacuums humans are able to construct, there's still a density of about a trillion molecules of gas per cubic centimetre. I doubt that this is anywhere near such a vacuum, so the gas density is quite likely to be orders of magnitude greater.

Cathode rays are used to make the semiconductors that replace them. Well, not exactly, but very similar. That’s the job of implant…it bombards the silicon with either positively charged compounds or negatively charged ones.

Hey Medhi, thanks for sharing so cool videos out there ! All are very comprehensive and funny at the same time ! (I wish I had a teacher like you back in the days before my engineering mechatronics school). It's been a while since you uploaded this video but as you explained it, you say that the cathode ray is producing a wind in atmosphere (due to presence of molecules). So your cathode ray is producing some thrust in atmosphere. So, if in (perfect) vacuum your cathode ray does not procuding thrust because of lack of molecules. But imagine that you could add some gas through the negative pole with some isolated nozzle then you could produce some thrust ! In low gravity and vacuum that makes a tiny ion thruster isn't it ? Well, congratulations Medhi, you have made half a space ion thruster ! Anyway, your videos helped me a lot in my profession in some fields and I'm always pleased when you upload new contents ! :D Cheers from France ;)
