Abstract:

The TRITON experiment for the study of plasma heating by intense, relativistic electron beams is described. A 1.2 MV beam of 150 kA of electrons is injected into a 4 M long theta pinch. The rationale for the design of this experiment is discussed in terms of the existing theory of the intense beam plasma interaction. Author
