While going over this patent (text is complete and will be online as soon as Geocities lets me back in) and rereading posts an old thought keeps coming to mind. The question has to do with "surface area" of the various "anode/cathode" components. If a scheme could be found to increase the surface area of the outer anode shell without increasing the diameter, or if a way could be found to increase the surface area of the ion-source grid (like using rings of flat metal (piston oil rings?)) without blocking the flow of gas particles from the anode shell, would/could this improve efficiency?
