Paper Abstract

A summary of recent developments of modern x-ray sources based on university-scale 1 MA z-pinch generators is given. Wire array z-pinches are a powerful x-ray source that was found during the last decade to be promising for inertial confinement fusion and radiation physics. Applications of novel and traditional wire-array configurations, such as X-pinches, planar and compact cylindrical wire arrays, to high energy density science are observed and analyzed. After a general introduction to wire array sources, new results are discussed along with numerous experiments.
