Research in pinch discharges at the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission includes: B-Dot probes; a laser interferometer; and Rogowski coils. In addition, simulations have indicated that if the initiation points on the inner edge of the cathode are set too closely, filaments of current will collide chaotically, rather than emerging as isolated and identical structures, also impairing symmetrical compression. Startup and shut-down transients, e. This result suggests that the reduced line opacity due to the inclusion of Doppler shifts could significantly affect the plasma dynamics and Kr K-shell emission. Measured modulation growth will be presented and compared with predictions of 2D simulations.

The experimental data are in good agreement with predictions from 2-D magnetohydrodynamic simulations. Design of the proper power system for an improved ablation-fed pulsed plasma microthruster PPT requires the ability to specify amplitudes, risetimes, waveforms and pulsetimes in relation to propellant properties and thrust chamber dimensions.
The RT instability growth rate in doped targets is reduced by a factor of 1. This maximises the compression of the DT ice layer, and increases rho-r at stagnation.
Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation, for the U.
Our fully kinetic particle-in-cell simulations have reproduced observed DPF ion beams.

Most of the neutrons were emitted during the second neutron pulse after the development of instabilities. Understanding the mechanisms behind these high gradients is essential for optimizing the device for unique compact accelerator applications.
Research in pinch discharges at the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission includes: Files over 3MB may be slow to open. Sequences of time-resolved filtered pinhole images of the plasma column show a symmetric compression leading to While the exponent, d, in the power law has received much of the attention in literature 3. By doing so, we keep the fuel at low temperature.

B-Dot probes; a laser interferometer; and Rogowski coils. Stationary operation in the limit of high magnetic Reynolds number may be characterized by a discharge thickness adjacent to the surface that scales inversely with the exhaust speed, pulsibg in a resistance that is approximately constant for fixed surface proportions and material.
Turchi PJMikellides P. Burn wave propagation in the isentropically compressed fuel is compared to propagation in fuel compressed by a standard current pulse. We demonstrate the generation pulsingg dense large-aspect-ratio plasmas columns with extremely high degree of ionization in micro-capillary channels heated by ultrafast discharge current pulses.

Using this beam we can directly measure the gradients and demonstrate acceleration amch2 an injected ion beam for the first time. Shock wave timing is compared to measurements of the liner resistance and optical images of the liner’s outside surface.
Z-pinch research at the Chilean Nuclear Energy Commission: Abstract Design of the proper power system for an improved ablation-fed pulsed plasma microthruster PPT requires the ability to pulzing amplitudes, risetimes, waveforms and pulsetimes in relation to pulskng properties and thrust chamber dimensions. We describe a method of isentropically compressing cryogenic Deuterium inside a metal liner.
The shocks launched into the gas radiatiate strongly; spatially resolved optical spectroscopy data and radial electron density profiles from interferometry images provide evidence for a radiative precursor ahead of the first shock. The experimental data show the hydrodynamic evolution of the target and MG-level magnetic fields generated in the broken foil.
The effect of Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities upon the peak density achieved is evaluated using the resistive magneto-hydrodynamics code Gorgon for a maximum current of 25 MA.
Magnetic field generation during the nonlinear phase of the Rayleigh–Taylor RT instability in an ablatively driven plasma using ultrafast laser-driven proton radiography has been measured.
