Abstract:

The overall objective of the research was to set up facilities to generate transient magnetic fields in the megagauss range. The principal application envisaged was the eventual combination of megagauss targets with high energy accelerator beams to test fundamental features of quantum electrodynamics. Both of these objectives were met within the duration of the grant. This report summarizes the principal results of the research.
