The purpose of this test is to remove the corona effect and the ionic wind produced by the wire placed above the Lifter. The wire used here is the thin tungsten wire placed in the 38 mm diameter vacuum tube of a tubular incandescent light bulb. I have used the same unlinked Lifter previously tested on February 20, 2003. I have used three tubes connected electrically together in triangle and the connection are carefully insulated so as to avoid any leakage current. The wire apparatus has been completly mecanically unlinked from the main aluminum armature. The thin wire, connected to the HV generator, is handled by myself and the aluminum armature, connected to the ground, is able to go upwards freely like a common Lifter.

Above : Three vacuum tubes have been electrically connected together to the High Voltage power supply.
The electrical connections have been carefully insulated for avoiding any leakage current.

The aluminum armature of the Lifter, connected to the ground, is free to move upwards
The height of the hovering is limited by three thin nylon wires fastened to the base.
The thin tungsten wire inside the vacuum tubes is connected to the (+) of the HV generator and handled by myself.

Lifter specifications
  • Aluminum plate : 200 x 20 mm ( 12µm thick)

  • Wire : tungsten

  • Working voltage : 25 KV DC


When the wire in the vacuum tubes apparatus is approached above the aluminum plate, while the HV generator is switched on, the aluminum armature goes upwards quickly towards the tube apparatus. There is no corona effect and ion wind effect in the vacuum tube, there is no hissing sound and the lifter flys very silently. The current measured is in micro-Ampere range ( about 1µA ) with about 25KV DC. The Lifter is able to hover with only 25 mW of HV power.

JL Naudin's comments : This test of the Lifter with the wire in vaccum tube and mechanically unlinked from the aluminum plate proves definitely that :

In the previous tests, it has been fully demonstrated that :
