Is English your first language? If not, could you get a little help in typing out your question, as I cannot understand you very well.

sivarama, Welcome to Physics Forums!

“Nolo” is the most popular and famous company that helps people get a patent. I suggest you start by reading and studying the most important 5 steps they give for free.
“Getting a Patent on Your Own. Here's how to get a U.S. patent on your idea or invention --without a lawyer.”
http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/getting-patent-yourself-29493.html

Then, if you think you can meet the requirements above, get this book:
Book “Patents For Beginners” $18.00 http://www.nolo.com/products/nolos-patents-for-beginners-QPAT.html If you get past my suggestions 1 and 2 and you are still interested in filing a patent application you should get this book to learn everything you must do, and how to do it. Book “Patent It Yourself”$35.00

You should begin with the experiment first (you don't need a patent to perform experiments). If it works, it might be something which can be patented. And you will need something working to get a patent.

It doesn't actually need to WORK (even!). You just need to write your patent application in such a way as it satisfies the Patent Examiner that it hasn't been patented before and also satisfies a few basic requirements. I should look up this in a form that is in your own language. It will be very hard work to get it if you are not a Patent Expert.
Just enjoy your experiments and don't blow yourself up!
