Fast-framing camera based observations of spheromak-like plasmoid collision and merging process using two magnetized coaxial plasma gun

We have been conducting compact toroid (CT) collision and merging experiments by using two magnetized
coaxial plasma guns (MCPG). As is well known, an actual CT/plasmoid moves macroscopically in a confining magnetic field. Therefore, three-dimensional measurements are important in understanding the behavior of the CTs.
