Paper Abstract

As z-pinches are powerful sources of X-radiation, the present work treats the possibility of their stratification by a standing light wave with the purpose of regularizing the radiation process. The ponderomotive force push out the plasma from the antinodes of the standing wave. Once the pinch shell has decreased up to the transverse dimensions of the laser beam, further compression takes place only in the wave nodes because of the unbalanced magnetic pressure. Since the temperature (and the pressure) in the plasma remain constant all along the pulse length, in the wave antinodes the process of the plasma ejection in radial direction begins. The resulting linear structure of the hot points of the plasma can be used as a spatial radiator and X-ray undulator.
