    Suspect this is a surface phenomenon; call a it a single plate slippery cap i.e charge disintegrates at surface.

    Consider the motion of the nucleus, any nucleus even insulators ’cause ya don’t know. Laminar motion;unidirectional motion; no motion is the goal.

    Superconductors don’t bother the nuclei.

    Or control Nuclear motion and tweak till conduction spikes.

    If I had an intelligent staff, I’d only search with simulation. Set c=1; q=+/-1; T=Lambda. Building a better computer. Modeling all elements. Let the computer do the research.

    If ya can’t build the elements, ya Easter Egg Hunt in an infinite set of combinations has no direction.
