I had a similar idea(yet unposted)that would have involved machining small ridges inside the anode shell much like threading the inside of a tube. This is what I was leading up to with my question about "surface area". By machining the ridges inside the anode shell you would not only create sharp (ion producing) ridges, you would also be effectively increasing the exposed surface area of the shell.

I wonder if the heat or particle bombardment might not defeat both mine and/or your idea. But that would take time and a good thing last as long as a good thing lasts.
