Dynamics of Multiple-Wire X-Pinches

Abstract

X-pinches are one of the most localized sources of X-rays and are potentially useful for a number of applications. An investigation was carried out into the plasma dynamics of a "tabletop" X-pinch plasma generated by passing a 40-ns 35-kA current pulse through two or four 5-mum-thick tungsten wires. It was found that the number of wires significantly… (More)
