Either a tungsten rod or some other material, perhaps hydrogen.
The particles were used to transmit energy to the ionosphere. The receiver
was simply tuned to receive energy from an overcharged ionosphere. The most
recent book I read stated the arcs from Wardencliff could be seen hundreds of
miles out at sea and as far south as Nashville.

Not to mention the Tesla turbine, which was also to be employed. "Wizard" by
Seifer, has a passage that states that the Wardencliff project involved four
separate inventions. Most of the quotes are from that book and Martains book,
Research writings and inventions of Nikola Tesla.
>Other than all of these inventionsare powered by high frequency, high potential electricity, they have little
in common. The particle gun definitely was not a part of Wardencliffe.
There were no vacuum tubes in the Wardencliffe design. The technology of
using grids in a vacuum tube for emitting high energy particles was not
discovered until after Wardencliffe was dynamited to the ground.<
In my opinion, the common link you mention is an important clue.
His death ray, light from a vacuum in high potential, and Wardencliff
all involved transfer of energy.
The carbon button lamp was one of several experiments, which proved that
crystals exposed to intense electrical fields produced particles that flew
off so fast they shattered the vacuum tube. This is thought to be the
forerunner experiment for the ruby crystal laser, only it was much better in
that it utilized charged particles to carry the energy. I suspect Tesla kept
some of the technology hidden until after Wardencliff.
Also in my opinion, the entire central shaft of Wardencliff was an open-ended
vacuum tube of sorts. An element, such as tungsten, could be exposed to an
intense electrical field and the particles that fly off should be repelled by
the magnetic field of the primary.
The carbon button lamp did emit particles, but these particles remained
within the lamp and formed a plasma which swirled about the terminal. The
reason the "death ray" vacuum tube had an open end was to allow the
particles to escape. That is something that couldn't have happened in the
carbon button lamp.<
Agreed, the carbon button lamp was for the purpose of lighting. I suspect the
other materials experimented in a high potential field were utilized.

Again I suspect Tesla did not reveal the particle beam research for some time
after its discovery.

If you look closely at actual photos of the Wardencliff project, you can see
the central tube. Also some earlier diagrams of the Tesla transmitter and
receiver, depict a metal pole, which has a wooden pole on top. An interview
with one of the workers at Wardencliff indicated he thought energy was
supposed to flow up through the central tube. I think he goes on to say Tesla
spent a lot more time below ground than on tower construction.
>My tall solenoid was only a 1 to 3 ratio to the pancake secondary. Tesla'stall solenoid was a much greater ratio. Someday I'll wind a taller,
skinnier solenoid with a ratio of something like 1 length in the pancake to
15 lengths in the solenoid. This will give me a much higher voltage. With
the 1 to 3 ratio I still have too much current in the top terminal and the
sparks are bright white and very hot.<

Ocean would give the best possible ground connection to Earth. These
caverns had steel pipes in them that were directly connected to the ground
of the Wardencliffe coil system.<
Imagine if you will connecting the ground to 6 lake sized capacitors. The
torrid connected to 4 capacitors, about a meter cubed. The energy between
torrid and primary is in a state of balance, the charge on the torrid tending
to be attracted to the charge on the primary. (If the energy in the primary
is suddenly dumped, the energy stored in the torrid has no place to go.)
Charged particles created inside the base of the open ended vacuum tube would
be attracted to the torrid, just as they are repelled by the primary,
resulting in acceleration of charged particles.
Recent developments in metal coating demonstrate charged particles can be
accelerated to several hundred meters per second in distances as little as 2
centimeters. (Nasa Tech) I think this same technology was applied at the turn
of the last century.
