The m = 1 motion of a screw pinch measured by external magnetic probes

  • A. Pochelon (a1) and R. Keller (a1)


Measurements of the m = 1 growing mode of a linear screw pinch, by external dipole probes, are compared with the recorded plasma motion on streak photographs. Good agreement is found up to a maximum amplitude which depends on plasma density and growth rate.
