- The ZT-40 Toroidal Z-Pinch experiment is the largest and newest Z-Pinch to be built at Los Alamos. The experiment consists of a discharge tube with a minor diameter of 40 cm and an aspect ratio of 5.7 to 1. The theta and Z-fields are produced by two capacitor banks, each with 650 KJ (at 50 kV) of stored energy. The experiment is controlled by a ''Prime 400'' computer which is dedicated for ZT-40 use. The experiment is to be constructed in two phases. First with a passive crowbar system and then later a power crowbar system will be added so that the load current can be extended about 250 ..mu..sec.
