The pinch ion density is not shown in any column in the table with the comparison of data from plasma focus devices. Neither is rp or zp specified. I assume that b in the fusion yield equation is the radius of the cathode. or is it something else? I can’t calculate the calibration constant with so many unknowns.

I’m confused. The LPPF best result mentioned is 1.1e11 neutron flux, 1.1 MA I_peak, with an estimate 0.638 MA I_pinch. log(1.1e11)=11.04, which is the same as shown in the graph. log(0.638) = -0.195, which is clearly different to a result of about 0.8 according to the graph . I must be missing something?
