Z-field compression

  1. Mar 3, 2014 #1
    Hello everyone,

    I know nothing about physics - i can barely spell the word. Im curious if anyone can explain to me what z-field compression is? I think its related to black holes?

    Much appreciated

    It is a magnetic confinement in one direction (called the z-direction).
