Study of the Z-Pinch Plasma Initiated by the Electron Beam
- 6 Downloads
A lot of activities are carried out to develop compact laser accelerators. The transportation and focusing of beams in Z-pinch-type discharges, which requires thorough investigations into methods for the formation of these discharges, are important problems to be solved. At the ITEP, an experimental setup  is constructed to study Z-pinch plasma dynamics when the discharge is initiated by an electron beam. The first results of the experimental and numerical investigations show that development of the discharge initiated by an electron beam differs considerably from the ordinary Z-pinch formation process.
