Pulsed power hydrodynamics experiments typically involve multi-megajoule capacitor banks or magnetic-flux compression generators imploding thin-walled cylinders of solid-density metal by the electromagnetic force associated with axial currents in excess of 10 MA. Much of this activity operates with technology developed for other applications (e.g., soft X-ray generation), which can be significantly larger than actually required for the scientific objectives of such experiments. This is… CONTINUE READING
