Title: Results of Russian/US high performance DEMG experiment

Abstract

In November 1992, the AU Russian Scientific Research Institute of Experimental Physics (VNIIEF), Arzamas-16, Russia and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos NM, USA embarked on a historic effort to conduct a joint explosive pulse-power experiment. With the concurrence of the Ministry of Atomic Energy (Russia) and the Department of Energy (USA), the two laboratories, entered into a Laboratory-to-Laboratory collaboration in the areas of very high energy pulse-power and ultrahigh magnetic fields in order to explore problems of mutual scientific interest. The first experiment to be planned was an explosively powered, fast, high-current pulse-power system demonstration. The experiment used a flux compressor, inductive store, and high-current opening switch to demonstrate the feasibility of supplying many megajoules of electrical energy, on microsecond time scales, to high energy density physics experiments. The experiment was conducted in Arzamas-16 on September 22, 1993.
