MITLThe vertical water transmission line of the generator meets the load chamber via a vacuum section containing a Magnetically Insulated Transmission Line (MITL). The centre of this line forms the cathode of the experiment, with current return posts connecting to the outside of the MITL.

wire array hardwareThe load design for the MAGPIE generator has been designed with flexibility and diagnostics access as priorities. The array holder is hollow to allow end on measurements, such as interferometry , in addition to a full array view for side-on diagnostics.
