Title: Radiative Properties, Structure, and Dynamics of Asymmetric and Symmetric, Uniform and Combined X-Pinches on 1MA Zebra Generator

Abstract

Experimental results of studies of the 1MA symmetric and asymmetric, uniform stainless steel, Cu, Mo, combined Al/Mo, Mo/Al, Al/W, W/Al, and Mo/W X-pinches are presented. Implosions of X-pinches are studied by spatially-resolved and time-gated x-ray imaging, spectroscopy, and laser probing diagnostics. New data for the total radiation yield are obtained. The planar-shape structures of X-pinch plasma and the corresponding electron beam is observed for the most of X-pinches. The effects of generation of hot spots along original wires positions that are cooler than that from the cross-wire region and arc structures from hot spots between wires are found for X-pinches composed from Al, Cu and W wires.
