Papers are presented on the analysis of absorption features in dense argon plasmas, short X-ray detection with diamond photoconductive detectors, an application of diffraction tomography to plasma density measurements, the PBX-M Thomson scattering system, and the development of a new q-diagnostic for TEXT.

First experiments have demonstrated the great capacity of X-ray Thomson scattering for the determination of plasma parameters such as density, temperature, and ionization state. Fusion power is a proposed form of power generation that would generate electricity by using heat from nuclear fusion a fusion process, two lighter atomic nuclei combine to form a heavier nucleus, while releasing energy.

Devices designed to harness this energy are known as fusion reactors. Fusion processes require fuel and a confined environment with sufficient temperature. Thomson scattering is an attractive diagnostic option because it can make local measurements without perturbing the plasma.

Key characteristics of such plasmas are a low temperature in the ~ –30 eV range and electron densities in the range of 10 10 to 10 18 cm −3, often with n n ≫ n e. The ZaP and ZaP-HD Flow Z-pinch experiments at the University of Washington have successfully demonstrated that sheared plasma flows can be used as a stabilization mechanism over a range of parameters that has not previously been accessible to long-lived Z-pinch configurations.

The stabilization is effective even when the plasma column is compressed to small radii, producing predicted Cited by: As a result, z-pinch research is currently one of the fastest growing areas of plasma physics, with revived interest in z-pinch controlled fusion reactors along with investigations of new z-pinch applications, such as, very high power x-ray sources, high-energy neutrons sources, and.

The central electron and ion temperatures were kept around keV. With ICRF heating, a similar long pulse discharge was achieved for 68 s with a heating power of MW. The sustained plasma parameters are: W p ~ kJ, T e(0) ~T i(0) = keV and n e = ×10 19 m During these discharges, no increase in radiation power has been observed.

This invited lecture presents the main physical problems met during studies of dense (>10 16 cm −3) plasma influenced by strong magnetic fields, i.e. when ion cyclotron motions are weakly disturbed by electron–ion es of high-current pulsed discharges of the Z-pinch and plasma-focus (PF) type, which can produce dense magnetized plasma (DMP) are presented.

We review studies of two kinds of dips in spectral line profiles emitted by plasmas—dips that have been predicted theoretically and observed experimentally: Langmuir-wave-caused dips (L-dips) and charge-exchange-caused dips (X-dips). There is a principal difference with respect to positions of L-dips and X-dips relative to the unperturbed wavelength of a spectral line: positions of L-dips Cited by: 4.

Dynamic return currents and electromagnetic field structure in laser-generated Z-pinch plasmas have been measured using proton deflectometry.

Experiments were modeled to accurately interpret deflections observed in proton radiographs. Current flow is shown to begin on axis and migrate outwards with the expanding coronal plasma.

Magnetic field strengths of ∼1 T are generated by Cited by: Plasma interactions will be investigated using high-velocity plasma streams. Laser experiments are ideal to study these phenomena in a controlled fashion.

Perspectives on plasma physics and HEDP! • The midth-Century approach to plasma physics, as seen in most textbooks, was simple! – Many particles per Debye sphere often as the definition of “plasma”!

– Quasineutral! – Only hydrogen! – Spatially uniform! – Maxwellian distributions! – Deviations from spatial uniformity or Maxwellians drive.
