Formation and structure of a current sheet in pulsed-power driven magnetic reconnection experiments
Physics of Plasmas
We describe magnetic reconnection experiments using a new, pulsed-power driven experimental platform in which the inflows are super-sonic but sub-Alfv\'enic.The intrinsically magnetised plasma flows are long lasting, producing a well-defined reconnection layer that persists over many hydrodynamic time scales.The layer is diagnosed using a suite of high resolution laser based diagnostics which provide measurements of the electron density, reconnecting magnetic field, inflow and outflowdoi:10.1063/1.4986012 fatcat:j2ri6qj2qnbo7d6gbktfs6wj4m
