Title: Filament preheating for phi targets

Abstract

The vaporization and preheating of a CD/sub 2/ filament inside a target is examined to investigate operation of such a target. The experimental arrangement duplicated the previous shots, with prepulse levels of 40 to 120 kV and several kA, and use of identical phi targets with CD/sub 2/ filaments. The behavior of the filament was observed by optical methods and was seen to consist of luminous and plasma phases in turn. This behavior is consistent with earlier hypotheses concerning phi target operation.
