Caption: Sandia researcher Ryan McBride pays close attention to the tiny central beryllium liner to be imploded by the powerful magnetic field generated by Sandia's Z machine. The larger cylinders forming a circle on the exterior of the base plate measure Z's load current by picking up the generated magnetic field.
