Title: GAS IONIZING AND COMPRESSING DEVICE

Abstract

A device is described for producing high energy gaseous plasmas. The device consists of a unitary refractory vessel having tapered end portions, a cylindrical middle portion, and means for spontaneously generating oppositely propelled plasma masses from the tapered end portions to a collision zone in the cylindrical middle portion. The means come from the spontaneous generation of diverging magnetic fields in the end portions and an axial magnetic field in the cylindrical portion. (AEC)
