A peak field of 1200 T was generated by the electromagnetic flux-compression (EMFC) technique with a newly developed megagauss generator system. Magnetic fields closely up to the turn-around peak were recorded by a reflection-type Faraday rotation magnetic-field optical-fiber probe. The performance was analyzed and compared with data obtained by the preceding EMFC experiments to show a significant increase in the liner imploding speed of up to 5 km/s.
