I got no relevant hits from
coil radiation that's enough to scare your pants off! He was the
radiation safety officer for his department, and had to ban his own
lecture demo apparatus.
Did he actually measure it? I'm surprised, unless there's
a pretty decent vacuum involved. I would have thought the
V=IR drop would greatly de-energize the electrons as they
go through the air.
I think the high frequency nature of the hand
held tesla gets around the danger.
What's the mechanism whereby frequency affects this sort
of Xray production?
