Summary of UCRL pyrotron (mirror machine) program

Abstract

Under the sponsorship of the Atomic Energy Commission, work has been going forward at the University of California Radiation Laboratory since 1952 to investigate the application of the so-called 'magnetic mirror' effect to the creation and confinement of a high temperature plasma. This report presents some of the theory of operation of the Mirror Machine, and summarizes the experimental work which has been carried out.
