Scholarcy highlights

  • The generation and use of megagauss magnetic fields have been subjects of research and development in laboratories around the world for over a quarter of a century
  • Research goals have included the development of compact, short-pulse, electrical power sources and the production of ultrahigh magnetic field strengths over significant experimental volumes
  • Some efforts have involved the use of high explosive systems, developing methodologies rather distinct from those of a normal physics laboratory
  • Occa­ sionally, it has been possible for the community of scientists and engineers engaged in work on high magnetic fields and related high energy den­ sity systems to gather together and exchange results and plans, successes and failures
  • The first such international gathering was in 1965 at the Conference on Megagauss Magnetic Field Generation by Explosives and Related Experi­ ments, Frascati, Italy
