Variation of high-power aluminum-wire array Z-pinch dynamics with wire number, load mass, and array radius
The fourth international conference on dense z-pinches
A systematic study of annular aluminum-wire z-pinches on the Saturn accelerator shows that the quality of the implosion, (as measured by the radial convergence, the radiated energy, pulse width, and power), increases with wire number. Radiation magnetohydrodynamic (RMHC) xy simulations suggest that the implosion transitions from that of individual wire plasmas to that of a continuous plasma shell when the interwire spacing is reduced below -1.4 mm. In this "plasma-shell regime," many of thedoi:10.1063/1.53920 fatcat:4wxp2b4jvjgsfm7mvybswxriqa
