Title: Simultaneous Excitation and Analysis of Three Instabilities in Magnetized Plasma

Experimental results are presented on the simultaneous excitation of three low-frequency instabilities in the magnetized plasma column of a Q-machine, namely the potential relaxation instability, the electrostatic ion-cyclotron instability and the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. The influence of the magnetic field intensity on the appearance of these instabilities was investigated.
