A Double Vortex Of Plasma In a Magnetic Field

Had you ever seen a double vortex of plasma.Finally I found the right driver to do this experiment, it is a flyback with a ZVS driver, the plasma flow has a voltage of 20000 volts.

Plasma is electrically charged and is deflected by magnetic fields, so it is possible to divert the flow by approaching a magnet.

The effect obtained with a ring magnet is amazing and with slow motion you get details that are invisible to the naked eye.

The current flowing through the arc is acted on by the magnetic field from the magnet. The arc is essentially functioning the same as the wire in a homopolar motor.
