Building a Fusor
Hello all. I'm building a Fusor at home, (or at least I am trying to...) and I had a question. I know that a static electric field cannot contain ions inside it, but I was wondering if you alternate the field between different sides of the inner grid would that make any difference? The reason i was thinking this was because the ions closest to the part of the grid that has the electric field will be pushed harder than ions that are further away. If you can switch the field quick enough would that possibly contain the ions?

A quadrupole ion trap, or Paul Trap, uses oscillating AC electric fields to trap ions. Perhaps it could be reshaped to geometry of the inner grid.
