Typical CTIX Shot

This movie has been compiled from 12 frames taken over the first 24us of the CTIX shot by our high-speed framing camera. The image is made of the visible light emission from the SCT plasma and trailing impurities as it moves toward the camera. The dark circular region in the center of the frame is the end of the center electrode. The image is false colored with yellow corresponding to the brightest regions.
