This Rife-Bare generator is a medical tool used for the eradication of bacteria. The generator employs the use of several different methods that all add to the functionality and success of the eradication of bacteria. The first is a square wave audio frequency generator that will effectively be used to target the resonant frequency of the bacteria desired for eradication. The audio wave will then be fed into a high voltage coil that will provide the pulsing and power adequate enough to provide the desired power and brightness provided by the bulb. The second method is light resonance through a gas bulb filled with a mixture of argon and neon or pure argon. The resonance will occur from the excitement of the gasses inside the tube from the output wave generated by the high voltage coil. Since live subjects will not be tested on in this design, there will be no need for a linear amplifier. Common electrical sense proves the fact that unless live subjects are used, that the only bacteria that would be affected by a design that does not employ a linear amplifier would be skin surface bacteria. Thus, testing the design on bacteria that would live otherwise deep inside a subject will be fine, but it is not precise as because the bacteria would not have the natural protection of skin tissue, bodily fluids, etc.
