- PEGASUS is a 1.5 MJ capacitor bank facility used in the Los Alamos Trailmaster foil implosion program. The experiments on this facility are to serve as a diagnostic testbed and foil physics benchmark for foil implosions with explosive generators as drivers. During the first year of operation, foil implosions have been driven by discharging the bank directly into a very thin Aluminum 2500 /angstrom/ thick free-standing foil without any pulse sharpening techniques; so-called ''direct drive.''These direct drive experiments have served as initial tests to optimize bank performance and foil implosion experimental techniques. The results to date are presented below. 1 ref., 2 figs.
