FIG. 1.

(a) The solenoid is bolted to a stainless steel flange, while an aluminum shell returns the current to the high voltage coaxial cables. (b) The 20 cm long solenoid was machined out of a solid block of phosphorus bronze. (c) The measured axial magnetic field profile of the solenoid (blue) agrees well with the profile calculated from Eq. (2) (red). The measurement demonstrates that the field is uniform over 12 cm.

The peak magnetic field is measured at the center of the solenoid using a pickup probe (diamonds). Linear regression of the data (dashed line) indicates that the field scales with the peak system current at 44 mT/kA. The data are compared to Eq. (2) (solid line), and agree to within 10%.

FIG. 3.

(a) Plasma columns in excess of 5 cm are produced when a 100 J laser is fired into a neutral density He gas fill. Visible plasma emission is collected by a CCD camera. The spaces between the turns of the solenoid are 1.3 cm wide. (b) The spot size of the heating beam has been measured to be less than radius over 6 cm in the propagation direction of our optical system.
