Hello Lightning Tamers!
Found this at the suggestion of youtube and though many of you who are interested in plasma would find it useful and insightful. While I acknowledge that I haven't been able to provide any significant introduction into the process of Plasma per interest of art as shown by my guests, this video does offer a well rounded explanation for equipment used to create vacuum, material properties, and well the functional use for plasmas as part of future energy source. I hope this helps give you a better insight into what it takes to makes something like this happen, and encourage you to research and read some of the sources I've listed in the RESOURCES tab to the right.
I've also provide an updated below regarding my progress on the PGC Light Lab.
Essentially in this step I used an ultrasonic cleaner with Cleaning Detergent called Citranox, which was suggested by Tim Drier, then used scotch pad scrub, rinsed with water, and then final rinse with De-ionized water. Bruce Suba had noted that he uses another process for cleaning, so stay tuned for a post from him.
