    Can anyone point me in the right direction for finding DIY EMP generators?

    I realize I can use a coil, cap and switching diode but I'm looking for something other than a coil. Something more directional by design so I'm not forced to shield a coil or attach it to a secondary emitter. Basically I'm trying to eliminate loss and produce a directional emitter.

    I realize shielding the coil and aiming it will achieve this but, is there something better?

    EMP's , real ones require nukes


    i'd suggest you build yourself a "can crusher"

    the US military have been experimenting with this for ages...........if you see their publicized prototypes they are all coils as you speak of.........

    Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf said the US have a weapon that is equivalent - it is basically a satellite that transmits microwaves and fries electronics.............apparently they have a very wide area of effect but i don't have too much info on this if it is true...........

    ya, microwaves do damage equipment, if you want a microwave gun just check out youtube,

    other guns i seen on google do shoot radar waves, microwaves, and other such rf,
    I think the best ones are the can crusher, and the magnetic rail gun,


    but EMP is electromagnetic pulse, which is a huge magnetic shock wave that occurs when nukes are detonated, some people do confuse this with the can crusher circuits,
    in theory you could do it but the parts list would be through the roof .....

    your best chance to generate such a field is to get 10^10 turns on a coil, and tie the anode to a kite on a cloudy day



    if you can, post the link to the "prototypes" for me, that'd be great

    I remember a popular mechanics or popular science article that had an energized coil that was collapsed into itself with a high speed explosive charge on one end.
