In summary, an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) is a burst of electromagnetic radiation that can disrupt or damage electronic devices. There are various reasons someone might want to build a small EMP emitter, and the supplies needed for such a project typically include a high voltage power source, capacitor bank, spark gap, and antenna. The cost of building a small EMP emitter can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars, and it is important to check with local laws and regulations before building and using one. Additionally, using an EMP emitter for malicious purposes is strictly prohibited.

Hello all.

A little help please. Does anyone have, or know a website for, designs for a small EMP emitter? Also, anyone know an online store where I might be able to purchase the crystals (many are illegal here in Australia) to set frequency? I thought I might try to make a little one at uni, a personal project.

Thanks.

Hello there,

I am not familiar with specific websites or online stores for designs and supplies for a small EMP emitter project. However, I would recommend doing some research and reaching out to experts in the field for guidance and resources.

As for purchasing crystals, it is important to follow all laws and regulations regarding the use and possession of certain materials. I would suggest looking into authorized suppliers in your area or consulting with your university's safety regulations for obtaining the necessary materials.

Additionally, I would advise caution when working on any project involving EMPs, as they can be dangerous if not handled properly. Make sure to thoroughly educate yourself on the proper safety measures and procedures before attempting to build an EMP emitter.

Best of luck with your project!
 

What is an EMP?

An EMP (electromagnetic pulse) is a burst of electromagnetic radiation that can disrupt or damage electronic devices.
