Boffins chill chip with ion wind


voltage and power law

This test was a prototype using 1000 volts across a 1cm gap.

If the requisite voltage follows an inverse square law, the hoped-for 1 micron gap would need only 10 volts.

My thanks to The Register for actually reading the research paper and providing the experimental conditions that were absent from the Purdue press release.
