Radiation environments produced by plasma Z-pinch stagnation on central targets

Description

A goal of modern pulsed-power technology is the development of an intense, megajoule level source of soft x-rays for use in high-energy density physics experiments. Since 1980 experimental facilities, theoretical concepts, computational tools, and diagnostics have been developed that place pulsed-power at the threshold of performing experiments of great interest to the applied physics community. In this paper the ``Flying Radiation Case`` approach will be presented and its predicted performance on Sandia National Laboratory`s Z-Machine [M.K. Matzen, Phys. Plasmas 4, 1519 (1997)] is described. The effects of instability growth in the plasma during the implosion, its reassembly on a central ... continued below

Plasmas 4, 1519 (1997)] is described. The effects of instability growth in the plasma during the implosion, its reassembly on a central cushion, and the plasma interactions with shaped electrodes are considered.
