Soft X-rays were measured with time resolution at angles of 45° and 90° to the system axis in an argon atmosphere using SPPD 11-04 fast semiconductor detectors. The dependence of the X-ray yield was studied as a function of the voltage of a capacitor bank of the plasma focus in a range from 8 to 14 kV and argon pressures from 0.5 to 4 Torr. Generalization of the results obtained allowed possible interpretation of the nature of observed emission.
