Yes! ... and that brings to mind an old thought that I never fully
Water has a dielectric constant of about 80! I don't know the
dissipation constant or loss factor.
It seems, on the surface, that one could dip a small air variable in
(pure) water and have a high voltage part with 80x the capacity of the
For long term usage the assembly would necessarily have to be sealed
