I've built myself a slayer exciter and I am trying to measure the output voltage. I've created a coil with approximately 10 turns and soldered a bridge rectifier to the ends of the coil so I can measure DC. However, as I turn on the slayer exciter circuit, it messes around with the multimeter and reads the voltage as infinite. I've mitigated this problem a little bit by placing the multimeter out of the coil's "sight". However, the readings are still slightly bogus (maybe 1-3 volts).
How can I resolve this problem further?
Any help is appreciated.
Edit: I've come to the conclusion that this is a radiation problem and am looking for some ways to improve my situation. I've been informed about the option to buy a better multimeter, so any other fix would be nice.
