In the Madison Symmetric Torus (MST) reversed-field pinch [Fusion Technol. 19, 13 1 ( 1991)] magnetic oscillations become stationary (locked) in the lab frame as a result of a process involving interactions between the modes, sawteeth, and field errors. Several helical modes become phase locked to each other to form a rotating localized disturbance, the(More)
New accelerator technology and a gathering of physicists and doctors interested in applications to therapy in the late 1940s made possible the development of early multimegavolt betatron techniques. Dr. Henry Quastler brought experience from an actual x-ray treatment, and Dr. Lester Skaggs joined the group to extract the electron beam. Some of the(More)
