The diagnostic access on MAGPIE allows a view of the full array from all of 16 vacuum ports arranged around the load area. One, two or three level of vacuum chamber can be used to allow analysis of...
MAGPIE is a TeraWatt pulsed power generator used for dense z-pinch experiments in the Plasma Physics group at Imperial College, London. The generator consists of four 100kV Marx banks which store a total of 336 kJ, and generate...
The loads for the MAGPIE generator are designed with flexibility and diagnostics access as priorities. The array holder is hollow to allow end on measurements, such as interferometry , in addition to a full array view for ...

Fusion Energy
...For many years, scientists have striven to harness thermonuclear fusion in a controlled fashion in the laboratory. At Imperial College, we are investigating a technique to achieve fusion by using the world’s most powerful X-ray source: the wire array Z-pinch...

Laboratory Astrophysics
...Using the current from the MAGPIE generator (1.4MA in 240ns), it is possible to create plasma jets with similar dimensionless parameters to those from protostellar jets. Highly supersonic, highly collimated, radiatively cooled plasma jets can be produced in our laboratory...
