    Does anyone think that it would be possible to create a sort of solid state device that would charge up during an electromagnetic storm? From what I understand of the tesla coil it is transfer of electrons from one material to the next that builds up a charge which is finally transferred to the capacitor and then released. I am also inspired by The photoluminescence effect in an old storm glass, when shaken mercury and the glass react and release photons? Could you layer materials such as mercury, glass, ceramic etc. (Perhaps with a magnetic core to prevent release of the energy?) in such a way that once it was bombarded with em radiation such as from a solar storm, it would become charged? I have also been contemplating whether or not it might be possible to create a model earth using different materials to simulate the properties of an atmosphere (and the earth itself) it could include gasses in it's design but I imagine it would have an outer shell since it would be difficult to maintain a sphere of gasses around the object without the mass needed and perhaps the external forces needed that maintain a real atmosphere. Please let me know what your thoughts are on this, and forgive me for my lack of scientific knowledge. I am but an explorer of ideas.If anyone has an idea that would elaborate on the concept please share them here, I would love to hear what you have to say!Thanks

    No.

    And paragraphs would make it clearer as to what you are trying to say instead of a walloftext, which is very hard to read.

    Get yourself a solid state Leyden Jar, and watch the leaves to see whether they charge during a thunderstorm. Or try the very dangerous Ben Franklin modification . I would guess that if you can charge the Leyden Jar, then you could modify it to make your own kind of Marx Bank.

    In the atmosphere, there is a natural voltage drop with altitude, called the Fair Weather Field which some people have considered using as a power source (PDF). See also this NASA page, "Soaking in atmospheric electricity!"
