The measurement of the current sheet and reconnecting magnetic field associated with spontaneous reconnection is reported. As such, the measurements are performed in the magnetically confined toroidal plasma configuration known as the reversed field pinch (RFP). Moreover, the RFP provides an experimental opportunity for basic studies of reconnection.
