Paper Abstract

The plasma focus discharge is discussed as a source of intensive x-ray radiation. This radiation is observed in two different regimes of compression —the "filamentary" and the "hot point" types. A typical parameters of radiating pinch are presented and the role of the energetic electron beam on the spectral image is discussed. The presented results of 2D image spectrometry demonstrate detailed space structures of radiating plasma. All the experiments were performed on the installations "TULIP" (FIAN, Moscow) and PF-1000 (IPPiLM, Warsaw).
