Abstract

For the first time, the regime of a micrometer-size hot spot formation is impemented for an X-pinch in a plasma, which is fed from a current generator based on low-inductance capacitors and rapid current switches. The configurations of X-pinches, which can be used effectively as point sources of soft X-rays with this type of current generator, are determined. A prototype of a small-size radiation source for high-resolution point projection X-ray radiography has been constructed. The main parameters of X-pinch as a radiation source are analyzed and compared with X-pinch parameters in high-voltage setups with shaping lines. An analysis of the data on the operation of X-pinches in generators with different parameters has led to simple relations that can be used to select optimal initial X-pinch parameters.
