Physics Senior Capstone

Kirlian Photography

Kirlian Photography incorporates high voltage, high frequency electricity, and the associated corona effect into the photographic process. Though the classical applications are sparse and met with skepticism, we investigate the particular variables that directly affect the intensity and propagation of the corona effect. We have also correlated the corona effect with electrical properties such as the electrical field lines, or equipotential lines according to the electromagnetic theory of various materials.
