Physics of Plasmas
Recent investigations of the interaction of fast-rising magnetic fields with multi-species plasmas at densities of 10 13 -10 15 cm Ϫ3 are described. The configurations studied are planar or coaxial interelectrode gaps pre-filled with plasmas, known as plasma opening switches. The diagnostics are based on time-dependent, spatially resolved spectroscopic observations. Three-dimensional spatial resolution is obtained by plasma-doping techniques. The measurements include the propagating magneticdoi:10.1063/1.1651491 fatcat:spqm232crfgptaec3og4qikko4
