Paper Abstract

A numerical study on an oxygen plasma produced in a gas-puff z-pinch(290kA with 1.2μsec risetime) has been carried out. We focused on the imploding phase and the simulation was compared with the measurement done by Foord et al. [1]. Our result shows that the possible driving source of the suggested ionization wave is the joule heating.
