Title: Nitrogen soft and hard X-ray emissions using different shapes of anodes in a 4-kJ plasma focus device

The effect of different anode tip geometries on the intensity of soft and hard X-rays emitted from a 4-kJ plasma focus device is investigated using five different anode tips. The shapes of the uppermost region of these anodes (tips) have been cylindrical-flat, cylindrical-hollow, spherical-convex, cone-flat, and cone-hollow. For time-resolved measurement of the emitted X-rays, several BPX-65 pin diodes covered by different filters and a fast plastic scintillator are used. Experimental results have shown that, the highest intensity of the both soft and hard X-ray is recorded in cone-flat, spherical-convex, and cone-hollow tips, respectively. The use of cone-flat anode tip has augmented the emitted X-ray three times.
