Abstract

A set of experiments has been conducted on the GIT-12 generator (4.7 MA, 1.7 μs) operating at microsecond mode. The experiments were carried out with multi-shell gas puffs. Dynamics of current-carrying plasma was registered by a set of B-dots monitors placed at different radii inside a multi-shell gas puff. The experimental data obtained with the help of B-dots monitors are compared with 0D snow-plow simulations of implosion dynamics and discussed taking into consideration the data from other Z-pinch diagnostics.
