High power pulsed electrical discharges into liquids are investigated for new industrial applications based on the efficiency of controlled shock waves. We present here new experimental data obtained by combination of detailed high speed imaging equipments. It allows the visualization of the very first instants of plasma discharge formation, and then the(More)
The stability of the interface of a viscous incompressible fluid superimposed on a massless fluid is studied for the case of an oscillating gravitational field. For the viscous case, the dispersion relation is shown to represent an infinite determinant of the Hill type, which is investigated analytically. The method presented allows one to find the whole(More)
We demonstrate the existence of a stationary rarefaction wave in a current-carrying plasma. The result unexpectedly mismatches with the commonly accepted viewpoint about the impossibility of rarefaction shocks in gases or plasmas. The discovered wave may appear when the magnetic field has penetrated into the plasma and magnetized the electrons. At this(More)
An indirect drive configuration is proposed wherein multiple compact Z-pinch x-ray sources surround a secondary hohlraum. Planar compact wire arrays allow reduced primary hohlraum surface area compared to cylindrical loads. Implosions of planar arrays are studied at up to 15 TW x-ray power on Saturn with radiated yields exceeding the calculated kinetic(More)
A compact Z-pinch x-ray hohlraum design with parallel-driven x-ray sources is experimentally demonstrated in a configuration with a central target and tailored shine shields at a 1.7-MA Zebra generator. Driving in parallel two magnetically decoupled compact double-planar-wire Z pinches has demonstrated the generation of synchronized x-ray bursts that(More)
