Magnetic switching

Magnetic switching

(Science: radiobiology) The use as switches of saturable inductors for producing high power pulses without electrical arcs. This is a principal technology for extending single-shot accelerators in light-ion-beam-driven inertial confinement fusion to repetitively pulsed devices for possible reactors. Three terawatt, 200 KJ magnetic switches have been developed for fusion drivers at Sandia National laboratories. (Info from the 1985 OSTI Glossary of fusion energy, may be out of date.)
