Paper Abstract

The time sweep by the optical streak camera of large number of plasma column sections is carried out. This allows to receive the 2-dimensional images with time of an exposition up to 0.5 ns, frequency of shooting up to 1 GHz and number of the frames up to 102. The technique is intended for study of dynamics of a plasma pinch behavior and allows to determine its configuration, characteristics sizes, dynamics of occurrence and localization of instabilities, speed of the expansion and compression, dynamics of temperature change. The ways of resolution increase are discussed.
