An anomalous swelling of a local magnetic field was observed near the tube axis in the last stage of the implosion phase in a linear theta pinch with no bias field. This characteristic seems not to be explained by the radial plasma oscillation, but the effect of inelastic electron-neutral collision has a possibility of causing the large swelling.
