Abstract

Techniques for the visualization of current sheets, which rely on the refraction of light from an external source, are reviewed. In particular, experimental results from the application of shadowgraph, schlieren photography, and a modified shadowgraph technique to visualize current sheet canting in a pulsed electromagnetic accelerator are presented. It is shown that for the discharge parameters in this device, only the modified shadowgraph technique gives useful results.
