High-Energy Density Collaboration

These photos were submitted by the VNIIEF scientist Sergey Florovich Garanin as part of his paper draft for the book. Only a few of them made it to the printed edition. Here we publish the entire set. These photos illustrate the pages on Collaboration in Pulsed-power-based High-energy-density Physics. More photos can be found in the memories by Irv Lindemuth, an active participant of these collaborations.

June 1992. LANL delegation observes preparation for an MC-1 generator shot at VNIIEF. A. I. Pavlovsky (second from right) points out features. To Pavlovsky’s right are C. M. Fowler and S. M. Younger. Behind Pavlovsky are R. E. Reinovsky and I. R. Lindemuth. Fowler pushed the button to detonate the generator and received a bottle of vodka as payment (VNIIEF photo)
