From the 24th to the 28th October, the lightning team of the LMU welcomed Stefano Alois and Dr. Jon Merrison from Aahrus University. These two specialists of electrification installed a Faraday cage inside our experimental setup.
A Faraday cage is a metallic cage electrically insulating what it contains. Measuring its voltage allows to estimate the total charges entering the set-up, and to visualize the discharges. Meanwhile flashes were observed with high-speed cameras. In one week, we achieved 24 experiments, most of them displaying lightning! Results will be further analyzed in Aarhus and Munich.
