2-D plasma compression dynamics in heterogeneous Z-pinch constriction

Abstract

As it was established in [1, 2] at Z-pinch currents up to 3 MA flowing through profiled heterogeneous loads, a high temperature plasma of less than 100 μm size is formed. The formation of high density (ne=1022 cm-3), hot (Te=1-2 keV, Ti=3-13 keV) plasma was accompanied by the appearance of neutron and also by soft and hard X-ray radiation [3]. It was shown… (More)
