Abstract

A double gas puff with a solid fill inner shell and an annular outer shell with axial magnetic field is proposed as a possible load configuration for a plasma radiation source for K-shell radiation production of high-Z materials. This load configuration is investigated in the experiments with neon gas puffs on the IMRI-5 generator (400 kA, 430 ns) and with argon gas puffs on the GIT-12 generator (2.5 MA, 300 ns). Influence of the axial magnetic field on z-pinch stabilization and K-shell radiation yield is studied.
