Laboratory investigations of space-relevant, self-organizing MHD plasmas


Pulsed power technology is used to produce transient MHD-regime plasmas having topology and dynamical behavior similar to solar and astrophysical plasmas. These plasmas are not exact scale models, but exhibit many behaviors similar to actual solar and astrophysical plasmas, for example, collimation, kinking, and jet motion. These plasmas can also display an interaction between MHD-dynamics and non-MHD particle orbit behavior.
