Application of x-ray diagnostics to the characterisation of pulsed power driven magnetic reconnection experiments

Jonathan Halliday
This thesis describes results obtained using a versatile, pulsed power driven platform for magnetic reconnection experiments. The platform used the MAGPIE generator (1.4 MA, 240 ns) to produce plasma inflows (Vin ā‰ˆ 50 km sāˆ’1) that carry a strong azimuthal magnetic field (Bin 3 T) and persisted for many hydrodynamic timescales. The platform consisted of a pair of inverse (or exploding) wire arrays, and the plasma flows were generated by the ablation of material from...
