Abstract

A set of microsecond implosion experiments was carried on the GIT-12 generator to study the radiative performance of Al planar wire arrays. The load parameters such as a wire diameter, a gap between the wires, the number of wires, and the total planar wire mass and width were varied during the experiments, however the implosion time and the peak implosion current were almost the same for all load configurations. This ensured equal energy deposition to the plasma due to kinetic mechanisms for all load configurations. Two implosion regimes with the implosion times of 1050 ns and 850 ns were investigated. The experimental data on the K-shell radiation yield and power at varying load parameters are presented.
