Abstract : A 27-cubic-foot fog chamber was constructed to investigate fog clearing by electrical means. Fogging of the chamber was accomplished with a spray nozzle driven by pre-humidified air, producing water droplets ranging from 10 micrometers to 75 micrometers. A corona discharge head in the center of the chamber was operated from 0 to 100 kV and measurements of fog conditions were made optically and with coated slides placed at various positions in the chamber. Rapid clearing was caused by the corona discharge. (Modified author abstract)
