Installation for studying the plasma of Z-pinch initiated by an electron beam

Abstract

An installation is developed for studying the dynamics of Z-pinch plasma with the discharge initiation by an electron beam. Research and commissioning works are performed for creating a system of electron beam formation using the adiabatic plasma lens. The study results are presented.
