DIY Electron Accelerator


This project is based on an instructible. See for details and above image.

It involves building a cathode ray tube, the simplist kind of of particle accelerator and the same thing old TVs and computer monitors use to generate an image, with a phosphorescent screen.

It could be used as a demonstration, or as a jumping-off point for further particle and plasma physics experiments.

List of equipment:

Clear wine bottle

2-stage mechanical vacuum pump

10kV DC power source

Pressure-rated epoxy

misc hardware
