Abstract : The results of studies on the insulation of high voltage across 1 mm gaps are reported. This effort supported the development of vacuum-insulated electrostatic generators, and electric fields as high as 115 kV/mm have been attained. One of the major problems is the reproduction of these field strengths with the large areas which exist in generators. Brushless operation of electrostatic generators has been achieved, and progress in machine performance and design are discussed. (Author)
