Abstract

Asymmetric capacitors were tested to examine what electromagnetic properties were exhibited a distance away from the device. The electrostatic potential was measured multiple distances away in order to determine how distance influenced its value. Magnetic fields were also briefly analyzed. The voltage provided to the electrohydrodynamic thruster was recorded along with the current measured at the power supply in order to examine how voltage and current changed the measured effects. The ionocraft design used was of a rotating horizontal configuration.
