Strong magnetic fields were generated using a fast pulsed power
generator, to investigate the interaction of plasma flows with magnetic
fields and magnetized background plasmas. The inductive loads used in
these experiments were designed using a filament and a finite element
modeling approaches. Magnetic fields up to 2 MG (200 T) were measured by
using the Faraday rotation technique.
