This is my first post, so hello all :)
I have a tungsten wire thats wrapped around a crucible. I want to send ~20A through it in order to heat the crucible.
Now the tricky part. Since this is part of a delicate setup, I don't want to use solder or glue in order to minimize contamination through evaporation (this is a physics experiment). At the same time the setup has to fit inside a 10cmx10cmx5cm box.
Any ideas on components I could use to make these connections? Is using crocodile clips to connect the tungsten wires a completely stupid idea? :D
