Title: Evolution of X-pinch loads for pulsed power generators with current from 50 to 5000 kA

Abstract

A review of X-pinches of various configurations and of different materials as an X-ray source for various applications is presented. Here, the advantages and disadvantages of different designs of X-pinches as a load for generators with a wide range of output parameters and as a source of X-ray radiation for X-ray point-projection imaging were analyzed.
