Fast compression of magnetic flux inside an imploding cylinder driven by laser beams

  • W. H. Choe (a1)


A method for the compression of magnetic flux inside a cylindrical liner imploded by laser beams is analyzed using a thin shell model. Simple scaling relations are derived for a number of key parameters. The potential of this scheme, as a fast-rising magnetic pulse generator, is explored based on the scalings obtained.
