  • What are these?
  • Captured Lightning sculptures are branching patterns of internal fractures that have been permanently captured deep inside various shapes of crystal-clear plastic. Technically known as Lichtenberg Figures, they were created by carefully trapping and discharging millions of volts of electrical charge inside pieces of clear acrylic using a high-energy particle accelerator.  These complex, permanent figures are formed when the trapped charges suddenly escape in a brief, lightning-like discharge. The intensely hot sparks leave behind permanent "fossilized" tree-like chains of microscopic fractures and tubes that reflect light like microscopic mirrors. Captured Lightning sculptures are fully discharged and are completely safe. They combine the technologies of particle beams and polymer physics with the natural beauty of fractals to create unique creations of scientific art.

  • The birth of a new Captured Lightning sculpture - as trillions of trapped electrons suddenly escape the
  • acrylic, they create a loud bang and a brilliant flash. The images above show a 12" figure
  • being discharged as viewed normally and through a dark filter.

  • appeared in the March, 2008 issue of Popular Science Magazine.

How are they made?
We inject hundreds of trillions of sub-atomic particles, called electrons, into sparkling clear acrylic specimens using a 5 million volt particle accelerator. The injected electrons charge up the interior of the specimens to potentials as high as 1 - 2.5 million volts. We then (very carefully!) manually discharge them. This suddenly releases the trapped charges, creating an intense, miniature "lightning bolt" inside the specimens. The high-energy electrical discharge leaves behind countless branching chains of microscopic tubes and fractures deep inside the acrylic - forming a permanent "fossil" of the paths taken by the discharges, called a Lichtenberg figure. An in-depth explanation about the history, theory, and other interesting properties of these fascinating objects  can be seen here. A simple one-page explanation is also included with every sculpture we ship. The following video clips show various parts of the process (captured during various irradiation sessions over several years). All of our Captured Lightning sculptures are completely safe, are made in the USA, and each one is a unique treasure.








Why do we make these?
We were fascinated by the incredible beauty and the complex physics of acrylic Lichtenberg Figures but we were continually frustrated by their scarcity. Every now and then, a banged-up specimen would show up in an auction or at a flea market, without any explanation of how it was created or where it came from. A group of fellow physicists and electrical engineers ("Spark Whisperers") decided to conduct independent research into the theory and technique of producing them using particle accelerators. However, since "beam time" and raw materials are expensive, we also decided to offer specimens to the general public to help fund our experiments. During each new experimental run, we strive to further "push the envelope" by creating larger, more complex and artistic figures, and by conducting experiments and measurements that help us gain an improved understanding of the physics and processes involved. Specimens from our latest production runs represent the current state of the art for 2D and 3D acrylic figures. We are proud that many of our specimens are recognized as being World Class in beauty and size.

We offer over forty styles of Captured Lightning Lichtenberg figures that include affordable 2 inch blocks and disks, a wide selection of medium and large specimens, to mammoth museum-quality 15" x 20" x 2" monoliths for discriminating collectors and institutions. We can create even larger specimens if desired. Every Captured Lightning sculpture ships with a simple one-page explanation about what it is and how it was created. Most of our newer sculptures have an amber-tinted layer. The coloration is called solarization, and it is produced by complex interactions between the electron beam and the acrylic. It usually fades with time, and the fading process can sometimes be accelerated by gentle heat or placing sculptures in sunlight. When illuminated by bright blue LED's, the solarization layer may also lightly fluoresce with a greenish-yellow color. And some sculptures may also have a slight foggy/milky appearance from the effects of being irradiated by high-energy electrons. 

How to best display your sculptures:
Images on our site were taken using lighting conditions which highlighted the delicate internal patterns. For best results, sculptures should be illuminated from one or more edges using LED's or other bright light source(s). This allows light to be reflected by the mirror-like fractures inside the sculpture, making the internal Lichtenberg figure glow brilliantly with the color(s) of the light source(s). Illuminating a sculpture using transmitted light (such as looking through the sculpture at a light source or window) actually reduces the sculpture's detail and beauty. We offer a wide variety of standard and custom LED lighted bases that are designed to fully highlight the incredible beauty of our sculptures.
As with snowflakes, every Lichtenberg figure is unique. Although your figure may differ from the examples shown on our web site, we guarantee it will be of similar or better quality. Some specimens have small fractures and light caramel-colored charring along the main paths near the exit point of the discharge. Charring is an unavoidable result of the high-current electrical discharges that create our sculptures, and it virtually disappears when the sculpture is illuminated by one of our light bases.  

By adding suitably engraved or lettered metal plaques to our bases, Captured Lightning sculptures make memorable gifts or unique academic, corporate, or retirement awards. We can provide custom plaques (adds $25 and one week), or customers can have their local awards and trophies business make plaques for them. We also offer custom laser engraving for most of our larger sculptures with flat surfaces.
Laser engraving typically adds a week to the delivery interval and $30 - $50 per sculpture depending on quantity. Captured Lightning sculptures are treasured works of scientific art that will enhance the decor of any room or executive suite. Because demand is high and quantities are limited, we recommend ordering soon to avoid possible disappointment. We combine shipping on multiple items whenever possible.

Discharge "Types":

Many of our sculptures are available with two or more discharge types. The appearance of the discharge varies considerably depending on how much electrical charge we inject and how we discharge the sculptures. Following are some images that illustrate most common types of discharges. The exit point of the discharge may be along an edge (edge discharge) or inside one of the large surfaces (interior discharge). In addition, the structure of the discharges may be branching and tree-like (Dendritic), densely branched or fern-like (Bushy Dendritic), a random tangle of discharges (Chaotic), or a mixture of any or all of these (Mixed). Specimens may also have more than one discharge location. Some examples should help illustrate discharge types - click on images below to see larger images:

For brighter areas, we recommend the BD753MC multicolor base (with nine multicolor LED's), or the LM2690 square base or  LM2692 round base with five natural white LED's. AC adapters for the BD753MC and ROT45MC are available only for North American/US power. However, the ROT45MC can also be operated off three AA batteries, but the turntable does not rotate in order to extend battery life. The other bases can be supplied with 120/240 volt AC adapters for North American/US, EC (Europlug), UK, or AU power options.

3 x 3 x 2 Inch Prism

Captured LightningŪ storms inside approximately 3" x  3" x 2" water-clear prisms. Multiple discharge planes, many with layer-to-layer discharges. Some specimens may show light charring in the heavier paths near the base of the tree - this disappears when the sculpture is illuminated. These are exceptionally beautiful when placed on a white or multicolored LED base. Click on the above image to see various discharge options and larger images. Newer sculptures may have amber layers (solarization) from electron beam irradiation that may fluoresce under blue or UV illumination. Solarization usually fades over time.

This style also looks great with our walnut bases such as our DK25x75CW (with cool white LED's), DK25x75NW (with warmer natural white LED's),  or DK25x75B (with "electric blue" LED's). Other bases include the  LM2688 rosewood finish light base with warmer natural white LED's. Multi-color bases include the BD753MC (with nine multicolor LED's - best for brighter rooms), or the ROT45MC rotating multicolor light base (better suited for subdued lighting areas).  Click here to view a short video clip of a Style 16 specimen on an ROT45MC rotating multicolor light base.

- Factory 2nd Specimens at HALF PRICE -
For folks on a tighter budget, we have a small number of "factory seconds" and  first quality experimental sculptures. Some have small fractures at the discharge point. Others have self-discharged and show a bit of charring as electron beam current was repetitively being injected and discharged through the figure. Although these are less than perfect, they are still beautiful and unique sculptures and are backed by our 100% money back satisfaction guarantee.

We also have some experimental sculptures that are NOT factory seconds. These are first-quality test sculptures being sold at a bargain price. 

Factory 2nds are priced at a 50% discount, or more, from the regular price, so they can be a real bargain. Experimental sculptures are also discounted 25-40% from similarly-sized sculptures. Click on the above image to see more details and to order your factory second or experimental sculptures.

In addition to our standard edge or interior discharged specimens, we are now offering spectacular 2D and 3D Masked specimens. These are prized by discriminating collectors and institutions. We can also provide custom, natural walnut light bases with a professional satin finish. Click on image for more product details.

15 x 20 x 2 Inch Massive Museum Sculptures
These are among the largest, most spectacular Lichtenberg figure sculptures in the world. One of these huge sculptures is currently on permanent display at the Numbers in Nature exhibit in the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Illinois

These huge 15" x 20" x 2" specimens were passed through the electron beam twice to create two independent charge planes. When discharged, they developed massive dendritic discharges along each plane as well as thousands of shorter discharges between planes. The result is a complex interplay of dendritic discharges that fill a region about one inch thick across almost the entire sculpture. We recently created more of these sculptures during our 2014 Lichtenberg run. You can view high resolution images of sculptures that are currently available by clicking on the image above. 

Each sculpture is supplied with a custom solid walnut light base with a professional satin finish. Bases can be supplied with all white LED's, all blue LED's, or (as pictured) one each of white and blue LED strips. Other colors are available on special order. These bases are designed to gently and safely support your sculpture while highlighting even the infinite detail of the individual discharges. Custom bases measure 19" x 8" x 2". Shipping costs are for shipments within the US. Inquire for shipping costs outside the US.

   BD985MC   
Battery and AC-Powered Multicolor Light Base
This compact color changing light base is 3" in diameter and 1.25" high. The top surface is mirrored to enhance your sculpture's appearance. It uses a 0.5" x 0.5" array of 4 high-intensity multi-color LED's and slowly cycle through a variety of colors. As the colored LED's continually change, they illuminate different portions of the sculpture, providing an attractive "moving light" effect.  The base has an attractive gloss black finish and has an ON-OFF switch. The changing colors cycle over a period of 8-10 seconds. Base can be powered from three AAA alkaline batteries (not included) or from a included 4.5VAC AC adapter.. When powered from batteries, the estimated running time is 30-40 hours. Since this base has only 4 LED's, it works best with smaller sculptures in areas with subdued lighting. For brighter locations, we suggest using the BD753MC instead.  Base comes with a two-pin North American power adapter (see image above). However, power adapter will work with 100 - 240 volt 50/60 Hz power, so base can be powered from UK, EC, or AU power when used with an appropriate plug converter (not supplied).
 
Ideal for many of our smaller sculptures such as Styles 2, 2A, 4, 13, 13A, 23, 29, 31, 43, 45, 47, and 54
Captured LightningŪ sculptures.

These compact light bases are 2.75" x 2.75" x 3/4" and comes with a choice of multicolor-color changing or bright white LED's. Each base uses a 0.75" x  0.75" square array of 9 high-intensity LED's to brilliantly light your specimen. The multicolor version continually cycles through a variety of colors. As the colors change, they illuminate various regions of the figure, creating a beautiful continually blending and shifting display. The white LED base bathes your figure in cool white light, and works very well for areas that have brighter ambient lighting, such as offices. The black plastic exterior has an attractive matte finish. These bases are significantly brighter than the BD985MC. Adapter output: 12 volts DC @ 300 mA, via a 1.3 mm center-positive connector.

Please call us (630-964-2699)  or email us if you don't see exactly what you need. Chances are we either have another style base in stock, or we can quickly order one that will meet your needs from our network of high-quality LED lighting suppliers. 









From time to time we offer special sales. We also provide updates regarding plans for future Lichtenberg Figure runs.  If you would like to be notified of special/new offerings, please send us an email to request being added  to our Lichtenberg Mailing List (LML).

Ordering Instructions: 
View Cart/Check Out:
A. International customers:
1. To avoid processing delays, please select a shipping option (black box below) so that we can rapidly pack and ship your order.
This covers the added cost of shipping and tracking international orders and also allows you to select the desired delivery interval. International orders submitted without an International Shipping Option will be delayed and may be cancelled after 5 days. The total shipping cost will be the SUM of domestic shipping charge and the selected international shipping option. 

2. Please use our shopping cart and checkout processes whenever possible. Our shopping cart supports secure online payments via all major credit cards or (at your option) via your PayPal account. Currency conversion to USD ($) is also supported for all major currencies. If you experience any problems or have any questions, please contact us via email (or at +1-630-964-2699). I can also send PayPal customers a PayPal invoice. For large orders, we also accept bank Wire Transfers, however, a USD $16 service charge will be applied to your order to cover our bank's service fee.  For your protection, please do NOT send credit card information through an email - email is NOT secure!

3. All address information must be provided using English characters. Hanzi or kanji logograms cannot be used on US Customs documents.

4. Please do NOT ask us to mark your shipment as a "gift" or to artificially mark down the cost of your purchased items. This violates postal laws for your country and for ours, can result in shipment delays, subjects us to possible customs fines, and creates problems with insurance coverage should your package become lost or damaged.

5. Please note that service
fees, VAT, or other import duties may also be charged by your country's Customs or postal systems. We have no control over these charges, nor can we prepay them on your behalf. These can include VAT, and Custom Duties, and additional Customs Handling Fees (UK Royal Post).

6. Remember that international delivery intervals can sometimes exceed 30 business days, especially during the busy holiday mailing season. Please order early to avoid possible disappointment. Priority Mail International shipping is recommended since it provides tracking and quicker delivery.

2. Shipping and Handling costs shown in the Lichtenberg Figure Galleries reflect costs to ship individual items to destinations within the US and US Protectorates using Priority Mail for larger or multiple items and First Class Mail for small items.  Our shopping cart software combines shipping for multiple items to reduce your overall shipping costs. 

3. Illinois customers will be charged 7.75% Retail Sales Tax unless the customer provides us with an Illinois Tax Exemption number. Please contact us  directly for this situation.

4. We can also provide expedited (overnight) shipping for an extra charge. Please contact us  directly for a quote.
