Dr Simon Bland, Dept. of Physics, Imperial College London

A group of Members and their guests visited College to discover what MAGPIE is doing. The largest university-based pulsed-power generator, capable of delivering an electrical current pulse of ~1.4 Million Amperes in ~250 nanoseconds, the equivalent to a Terawatt of electrical power.

They met leaders and researchers from this world-leading university group in plasma physics research and learnt about their fundamental research into laser-plasma interactions, plasma spectroscopy and charged particle acceleration.
