>Assuming (ha!) that I have a good vacuum, voltages required (for an "axial fusor") does anyone know if there is a way to electromechanically (or other) way to move the electrodes while under vacuum? Would like to study confinement vs geometry...
**************************************************I think its important to mention something about cylindrical IEC devices.

They do not have to be made out of glass. Just like another other IEC device, it can be made out of Stainless Steel. If you are serious about making a cylindrical IEC I would have to say that metal is the better one.
