Abstract

The results of X-pinch experiments performed using a small-sized pulse generator are analyzed. The generator, capable of producing a 200-kA, 180-ns current, was loaded with an X-pinch made of four 35-μm-diameter aluminum wires. The analysis consists of a one-dimensional radiation magnetohydrodynamic simulation of the formation of a hot spot in an X-pinch, taking into account the outflow of material from the neck region. The radiation loss and the ion species composition of the pinch plasma are calculated based on a stationary collisional-radiative model, including balance equations for the populations of individual levels. With this model, good agreement between simulation predictions and experimental data has been achieved: the experimental and the calculated radiation power and pulse duration differ by no more than twofold. It has been shown that the x-ray pulse is formed in the radiative collapse region, near its boundary.
