The possibility of creating a high-power X-ray source based on the recombination radiation mechanism has been studied and analyzed. The recombination X-ray radiation from neon, aluminum, and argon was obtained in experiments with plasma liners performed on the GIT-12 setup using a current pulse amplitude of ∼2.5 MA and a leading pulse front width of ∼300 ns. The obtained results show that the recombination mechanism of X-ray generation offers good prospects for the development of a high-power X-ray source with photon energies in the 7-20-keV range.
