University of Michigan Adopts Ultra High Speed for High-End Research
Summary of University of Michigan's Research
Capturing ultra-high speed camera footage of an imploding plasma column in wires and foils, otherwise known as a z-pinch, is no simple task. That's why researchers at the University of Michigan's Plasma, Pulsed Power, and Microwave Laboratory (PPML) in Ann Arbor are using the Ultra UHSi 12/24 Ultra High Speed Framing Camera, a 200 million frame per second intensified camera capable of capturing the development of instabilities on the edge of an imploding plasma column. Uncovering the evolution of instabilities of the z-pinch could lead to key advances in fusion concepts to improve implosion uniformity and increase neutron yields. Special thanks to Nicholas Jordan: Assistant Research Scientist of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences for letting us share the exciting research their team is conducting at the University of Michigan.
