Abstract : A high-intensity, high-current relativistic beam has been injected into a cusped magnetic field. Energy detected by a calorimeter has been used to determine that 10 to the 14th power electrons are passed through the cusp. Preliminary observations indicate that these electrons produce a cloud of relativistic electrons gyrating in a magnetic field having a small ratio of translational to rotational energies. (Author)
