Abstract

The scaling relations for a traveling mirror magnetic compressor [P.M. Bellan, Phys. Rev. Lett. 43, 858 (1979)] having nonconstant capacitance are derived. Varying capacitance (rather than inductance) makes possible a lower impedance device, and hence, higher field levels or faster compression times.
