3.L. P. Bradley, T. H. Martin, K. B. Prestwich, J. E. Boors, and D. L. Johnson (in Ref. 2) discuss a similar compression method using tapered conducting cylinders containing neutral gas.

5.Note that if beam current were incompletely neutralized by plasma current this conclusion would be strengthened, since any net beam current would have increased the net magnetic field.

7.Noise precluded the pinch‐current measurement during the beam pulse. No pinch‐current change was detected after the beam pulse, but we could not have detected a change of less than 10%. The inductance change associated with local expansion of the field structure would produce a current change of
