Many years work on the development of magnetocumulative generators of ultra-high magnetic fields has led to the creation of the cascade MC-1 generator, in which a magnetic field of more than 28 MGs was recorded in 1998. This device consists of a generator solenoid (the first cascade) with internal and external diameters of 175 mm and 200 mm respectively and a length of 500 mm, and two internal cascades with diameters of 28/spl times/35 mm and 12/spl times/17 mm and a length of /spl sim/200 mm…

Computational investigation of operating conditions of the cascade generator MC-1 with large HE charge
VNIIEF is developing magnetocumulative generators of ultrahigh magnetic fields (MC-1) of various size, among which are generators with a large HE charge of 360 and 650 mm inner and outer diameter,
Computational Magnetohydrodynamic Investigation of Flux Compression and Implosion Dynamics in a Z-pinch Plasma with an Azimuthally Opposed Magnetic Field Configuration
Magnetic flux compression is a well established technique for the generation of ultrahigh magnetic fields, large currents, and large energy densities. It has been suggested as a means for power

It is already several tens of years to a cascade magnetocumulative (MC-1) generator of reproducible magnetic fields of multimegagauss range-a well-known device in megagauss physics. Due to several
Particle Production in Strong Electromagnetic Fields in Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions
I review the origin and properties of electromagnetic fields produced in heavy-ion collisions. The field strength immediately after a collision is proportional to the collision energy and reaches ~
Hydrogen atom in a strong magnetic field
We study the energy spectrum of atomic hydrogen in strong (?G) and ultra-strong (?G) magnetic fields, in which the hydrogen electron starts to move relativistically and quantum electrodynamics
Fundamental mechanism for all-optical helicity-dependent switching of magnetization
Rotating an atom’s wave function with the rotating electric field of a circularly polarized laser shows the quantum mechanics for the atom is equivalent to that in a staticElectric field of the same magnitude and a tremendous static magnetic field which interacts with the atom in somewhat different ways.
Spatiotemporal Evolution of Intense Short Gaussian Laser Pulses in Weakly Relativistic Magnetized Plasma
The weakly relativistic regime of propagation of a short and intense laser pulse in the magnetized plasma is investigated. By considering relativistic nonlinearity and using non-linear Schrodinger
Pair production by an electron to excited levels in a magnetic field
The resonant process of electron–positron pairproduction by an electron in a subcritical magnetic field has been studied when the pair is produced to exited Landau levels. The spin dependency of the


Reproducible Generation of Multimegagauss Magnetic Fields
A method of reproducible ultrahigh magnetic field generation by cylindrical implosion is suggested. The method involves the use of an increased initial magnetic field and a decreased magnetic flux
Production of Very High Magnetic Fields by Implosion
Magnetic fields are produced in the 10–15 megagauss range by use of high explosives which compress the flux obtained from initial fields of approximately a hundred thousand gauss. The fields
