Atlas will be a high-energy (36 MJ stored), high-power (/spl sim/10 TW) pulsed power driver for high energy-density experiments, with an emphasis on hydrodynamics. Scheduled for completion in late 1999, Atlas is designed to produce currents in the 40-50 MA range with a quarter-cycle time of 4-5 /spl mu/s. It will drive implosions of heavy liners (typically 50 g) with implosion velocities exceeding 20 mm//spl mu/s. Under these conditions, very high pressures and magnetic fields are produced… CONTINUE READING
