Results of an energy conditioning experiment relating to extended high energy discharge series, prebreakdown current, voltage collapse, and breakdown current pulses are analyzed. It was found that titanium alloy electrodes perform significantly better than material combinations with a copper anode when tested under high energy discharge conditions. The design and initial results of a barium contamination experiment are reported. In this experiment, barium is evaporated from a typical barium oxide cathode near the electrodes. Preliminary withstand tests are also reported.
