Paper Abstract

Powerful pulsed soft x-ray point sources are being developed, driven by the Zebra z-pinch at the Nevada Terawatt Facility. A wide variety of x-ray and EUV pulses can be generated, depending on the z-pinch load. X-ray and EUV pulses have been produced with duration from 1.5 ns to 40 ns, energy from 30 J to 9 kJ, and effective source size smaller than 100 micrometers . These pulses will be used for the development of plasma diagnostics, for the study of surface physics, and for microscopy.
