To have such a capacity, ball lightning must have a multilayer structure, e.g., the structure of a multilayer spherical capacitor. Paper [5] shows that the average distance between unit charges of a charged sphere with R radius is [pi] [([R.sub.re]).sup.1/2].
This slight energy difference was then exploited using the energy resolution of a spherical capacitor analyzer to map the different silicon chemistries.
