Study of a high power capillary discharge
The direct generation by electrical discharges of hot and dense plasma columns with large length-to-diameter ratio is of interest for the development of efficient soft x-ray lasers and has resulted in the generation of coherent radiation at wavelength as short as 46.9 nm. This work presents the first experimental results of a new high power density capillary discharge designed to explore the generation of axially uniform plasma columns for the development of discharge pumped lasers at shorter wavelengths. A high power pulsed power generator based on a three-stage pulse compression scheme was ...
