Saturn, Sandia’s workhorse pulsed-power machine, delivers hard radiation during one of its milestone shots. The scarcity of jagged, lightning-like arcing between different water/metal interfaces means that the machine’s water insulation is effective, and that relatively much of its electrical pulse is traveling on its intended path from the machine’s circular exterior to its central target.

Science from the Center of the Earth to Black Holes - The Z machine is located in Albuquerque, N.M., and is part of the Pulsed Power Program, which started at Sandia National Laboratories back in the 1960s. Pulsed power is a technology that concentrates electrical energy and turns it into short pulses of enormous power, which are then used to generate X-rays and gamma rays.
