quote:One of the larger homopolar generators that was produced by Parker Kinetic Designs via the collaboration of Richard Marshall, William Weldon, and Herb Woodson. Parker Kinetic Designs have produced devices which can produce five mega-amperes. Another large homopolar generator was built by Sir Mark Oliphant at the Research School of Physical Sciences and Engineering, Australian National University. It produced 500 mega-joules and was used as an extremely high-current source for experimentation from 1962. It was disassembled in 1986. Oliphant's construction was capable of supplying currents of up to 2 mega-amperes.
