A recent publication [D.] describes the first controlled experiments measuring the growth of the magneto-Rayleigh–Taylor instability in fast ($100 ns) Z-pinch plasmas formed from initially solid aluminum tubes (liners). Sinusoidal perturbations on the surface of these liners with wavelengths of 25–400 lm were used to seed single-mode instabilities. The(More)
The first controlled experiments measuring the growth of the magneto-Rayleigh-Taylor instability in fast (∼100  ns) Z-pinch plasmas are reported. Sinusoidal perturbations on the surface of an initially solid Al tube (liner) with wavelengths of 25-400  μm were used to seed the instability. Radiographs with 15  μm resolution captured the evolution of the(More)
