First, you've got a barrel full of electromagnets that systematically switch on one after the other to fling magnetic steel bolts out of the non-magnetic aluminum barrel at crazy speeds of 15 shots every two seconds. The thicker gauge copper wire you use in this experiment, the more powerful your electromagnetic pulse will be. 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 size of the copper wire and length of the coil will determine the strength and radius of the electromagnetic pulse. For more about shielding from someone who has spent his career doing electromagnetic shielding, see Donald R. To create a simple electromagnetic pulse, you will need a disposable camera, copper wire, rubber gloves, solder and soldering tools, and an iron rod.

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. You walkie-talkie antenna will serve as the stock onto which you fix your electromagnetic coil and camera circuit board.
For safety, start with a small device to test the effectiveness of your design before creating a larger, more powerful pulse.

If your electronic device ceases function after your EMP, you have successfully created an electromagnetic pulse. Grasping your EMP device by the insulated base of the antenna, like a Ghostbuster Neutrona Wand, hold your electromagnetic coil toward your test object and flick your switch to the "On" position.
