Another dramatic climb toward fusion conditions for Sandia Z accelerator Feature Summary

From Physics Research
Sandia Z-Pinch
The Z-Pinch machine in this photo (hi-res version) at Sandia National Laboratories is a plasma confinement system that discharges a very large voltage through fine wires. For more information, see Sandia Z Accelerator, and to learn about fusion power production, see Fusion Machines at the American Physical Society's outreach website Physics Central. To explore plasma confinement, see FusEdWeb.
