The thicker gauge copper wire you use in this experiment, the more powerful your electromagnetic pulse will be. In the event an iron rod is not available to you, you can use a non-metal rod as a substitute.
When working with electrical components that could be holding a charge, or when running electrical current through an object, it is recommended you wear rubber gloves to prevent any errant shocks to yourself.
Wrap your copper wire tightly around your core, leaving little to no gaps in your windings.[4] You should leave excess wire at the beginning and end of your winding so that you can connect your coil to your flash capacitor. Wearing rubber gloves can save you from getting an electric jolt while handling your camera circuit and flash capacitor. Expend the charge in your capacitor by engaging the flash after removing the batteries from your camera.
A grounded platform, like a tree stump or plastic table, is an ideal testing surface for your EMP emitter.
Many office supply stores have affordable electronic calculators that you can use to test your EMP. Electromagnetic fields are, in most cases, invisible to the eye.[10] If you don't have a test object, even if you have successfully created an EMP, you may not know it.
The nature of the EMP field you are creating will affect any electronics, even those that are switched off. Depending on the kind of flash capacitor you have used, the voltage required to charge your capacitor will be variable. You'll want to attach your camera circuit face up so that the capacitor and its connection pathways aren't interfered with by the cardboard.
Your cardboard mount for your camera circuit should have some additional space for your AA holder. If you are not confident in your knowledge or construction of electrical components, you may want to wear a pair of rubber glove when operating your device, as an added precaution. If your device has successfully worked, your test object, and any other electronics caught in your EMP field, will not turn on.
Does a higher capacitance for the capacitor result in a more "powerful" electromagnetic pulse?
The size of the copper wire and length of the coil will determine the strength and radius of the electromagnetic pulse.

The E-bomb isn't harmful to humans, unless one is set off near a hospital or anyone wearing a pacemaker. 351,358 ContributionsYou can maintain power over people as long as you give them something. People require no protection directly from EMP unless they have implanted electronic medical devices, or if they are hooked up to electrically powered life-support. To create a simple electromagnetic pulse, you will need a disposable camera, copper wire, rubber gloves, solder and soldering tools, and an iron rod. Depending on the materials you have used, the effective range of your EMP shouldn't be more than a few feet in any direction. This includes life-supporting devices, like pacemakers, and valuables like cellular phones. Since the electromagnetic pulse field will only affect electronics, you may want to buy an inexpensive electronic device from your local electronics store. You will need electricity to re-charge your capacitor, which will then provide the current to your electromagnetic coil and create your EMP. You can do this by removing the wires from the electromagnetic coil, allowing the current from the battery to feed into the capacitor, and then with an insulated manipulator (like rubber gloves or plastic tongs), reattach the wires of your coil to your capacitor. By activating the flash of your camera, you will release the stored electricity in it, which will surge through your electromagnetic coil and create your EMP. If you have chosen a calculator as your test object, after activating your capacitor, if your EMP has worked, the calculator will not turn on. The construction of your handheld EMP device will go most smoothly if you have all the tools and components required for construction on hand. Inside your disposable camera, you will see a main circuit board that controls the functions of your camera.
Be sure that you have an adequate length of copper wire; your wrap should evenly and completely cover your iron core. You walkie-talkie antenna will serve as the stock onto which you fix your electromagnetic coil and camera circuit board.
Your cardboard will serve as another insulator to prevent any unpleasant electrical shocks.
Since current will be running through your coil to create your EMP, it's a good idea to double insulate your antenna by putting another small piece of cardboard between your coil and the antenna. Find the battery connector tabs on your camera circuit and connect them to the corresponding positive and negative ends of your AA battery holder.[15] This can then be attached to a free space on your cardboard camera circuit mount with electrical tape. The excess wire that you left at the beginning and end of your copper wire winding will need to be soldered to the electrodes of your flash capacitor.

Use your electrical tape to firmly attach your cardboard mount and its component to your antenna. Make sure you have chosen a location far enough away from electronics that you don't inadvertently do harm. Check that the switch for your device is set to off, and then install your batteries in to the AA battery holder on your cardboard mount. If you have adequate cooling for a stronger EMP device, it is proportional with the copper's thickness and the voltage you give to create the magnetic field that disturbs the electronic device. For safety, start with a small device to test the effectiveness of your design before creating a larger, more powerful pulse. Although testing is still ongoing to verify the effects on humans, sci…entists do know that if someone with any electrical implants were hit with megawatt, high-powered microwaves, the fluid in their body cells would vaporize into steam immediately before they even realized what was happening. Equipment …can be protected against EMPs through the construction of a Faraday Cage. Any damage you cause to these devices through your EMP could result in legal repercussions. If your electronic device ceases function after your EMP, you have successfully created an electromagnetic pulse. Wrap the base end of your walkie-talkie antenna with electrical tape as a preventative measure for being shocked.
Use your electrical tape, taking care not to cover any of the electric pathways of your camera circuit, and attach it to your piece of cardboard.
You should attach your mount above the base of your antenna, which you should have already insulated with electrical tape. Depending on the materials and technique you used in the construction of your device, the range of your EMP field may include only the immediate vicinity of your coil, or it may reach up to several feet around the coil. Grasping your EMP device by the insulated base of the antenna, like a Ghostbuster Neutron Wand, hold your electromagnetic coil toward your test object and flick your switch to the "On" position.

If a person was caught in the sidelobe of a beam, or a weak reflection of the main beam off a metal surface, he or she could suffer from burns and permanent brain damage.
