Invitation: Send in your current trace of any (preferably strong) focussing shot. Include the bank parameters, Lo and Co and ro(if you have), tube geometry b,a ,zo and operational parameters Vo and Po and fill gas. We will fit your current trace for you. On successful fitting you will have the time history of your axial and radial dynamics, plasma properties such as temperature and radiation yield, plus other important quantities such as pinch current and neutron yield (if operating in deuterium) as computed by the model. Or do it yourself with the code you can download above, and let us have your results to add to our Archive.
