Research Program

The emphasis of our research program is on experimental z-pinch plasma physics and development of advanced x-ray and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) plasma diagnostics. Z-pinch plasma, and in particular x-pinch plasma that formed by touch-crossing of two or four wires between the anode and the cathode of a pulsed power generator, is characterized by temperatures up to several keV and densities near a solid state. Examples of such plasmas are the inner regions of stars and future fusion reactors. Experiments are designed to study the nature of fundamental processes in plasmas, to provide data on main plasma parameters such as temperature and density, and to justify theoretical codes and models.

At the beginning of our research program (1994-1996), the new type of the x-ray/EUV diagnostic with focusing glass capillary converters (GCC) for atomic physics and plasma physics research was developed. The first focusing GCCs for operation in a EUV spectral region 50-1000 Ĺ were developed. The sensitivity of the EUV spectrometer with GCC at the Physics Department Multicharged Ion Research Facility (MIRF) was increased by order of magnitude. This beam-line (operational from 1995) was successfully applied in ion-atom collision experiments and experimental simulations of spectral emissions in comet tails at the MIRF. The new EUV polarimeter/ spectrometer with GCC was patented. The prototype of this device was tested. The development and study were supported by the US Academy of Science CAST grant, ACSPECT Inc. (Reno, Nevada) and the NASA grant.

The main goal of the 1997-2002 years program phase was the development of advanced x-ray/EUV spectroscopy and spectropolarimetry diagnostics for the Nevada Terawatt Facility (NTF), and study the physics of 1MA high-Z x-pinch and wire-array plasmas at the NTF. The NTF is the biggest from US Universities z-pinch facility with a maximum current up to 1MA and a primary stored energy of about 150 kJ. Temperatures and densities of NTF x-pinch plasmas are very similar to parameters of plasma produced on the Sandia National Laboratories Z-accelerator (SNL-Z) - the biggest z-pinch machine in the world. The 12 beam-lines x-ray/EUV diagnostic complex (including time-gated imaging and spectroscopic devices, polarimeters/spectrometers, fast x-ray diodes, etc.) was developed and successfully used in Ti, Fe, Mo, and W x-pinch and wire-array research. The characterization of the x-ray plasma source, spectroscopic K- and L-shell research, study of energetic electron beams in plasma, spectropolarimentry measurements, and hard x-ray experiments have been performed at the first time for 1.0 MA high-z x-pinches. The new type of a multichannel x-ray spectrometer with GCC for plasma diagnostics was patented. The one-channel prototype of this device was tested at the compact x-ray laser plasma source. The new low-resolution 10 channel x-ray spectrometer was jointly designed and developed with Bechtel Nevada Inc. and used in experiments on the SNL Z-machine. The research program was supported by DOE-NNSA/NV Cooperative Agreement DE-FC08-01NV14050 and the Sandia National Laboratories grant.

From 2002, our research has focused on several directions. The first is the creation and operation of the new Plasma Physics and Diagnostics Laboratory (PPDL) at the Physics Department with a compact z-pinch plasma/laser plasma facility “Sparky”. “Sparky’s” compact z-pinch machine has the energy in its capacitors of 0.5-0.8 kJ and current of 90-100 kA (pulse rise-time of 700 ns) which can operate in “vacuum spark” or “one wire/x-pinch” modes. The EUV/soft x-ray laser plasma source operates with 0.4 J, 3 ns, 10 Hz solid state laser. The main goals of PPDL are training of students, pulse power and plasma physics study, plasma diagnostics development for the SNL-Z generator, the NTF and “Center for Study of Pulsed-Power-Driven High Energy Density Plasmas” at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY).

The work for SNL had included the study and development of a hard x-ray spectropolarimetry of hot plasma, and advanced EUV diagnostics with GCC for magnetic insulation transmission line (MITL), and ongoing experiments with new load current multiplier (LCM) and support of experiments on SNL-Saturn generator with planar wire arrays.

An important area of our laboratory activity is wire-array and x-pinche physics study, and new diagnostics development at the “Center for Study of Pulsed-Power-Driven High Energy Density Plasmas” at Cornell University (Ithaca, NY). This research includes a study of implosion dynamics and K-, L-, and M-shell radiation characteristics of single and nested wire arrays and x-pinches, and the investigation of the nature of energetic electron beams at Cornell low-impedance z-pinch machines (1 MA Cobra and 0.4 MA XP) in comparison with the results from the NTF high-impedance 1 MA Zebra generator.

In 2006, our laboratory completed the transfer of the x-ray core diagnostics devices for Zebra generator from the PPDL to the NTF Engineering & Development and trained the NTF Engineering & Development technicians to work with core x-ray diagnostics.

From May 2004 to April 2007, six joint experimental campaigns on study of implosions dynamics and radiation properties of 1 MA different planar wire arrays, compact cylindrical wire arrays, and x-pinches were performed by our laboratory at the Zebra facility in collaboration with the SNL team, the NTF team, the Theoretical Plasma Spectroscopy Group from the Physics Department, the Icarus Inc., the Naval research Laboratory, and the Ecole Polytechnique (France). New basic experimental results were obtained on single, double, triple, and cross- planar wire arrays, low wire-number and compact cylindrical arrays plasma x-ray sources characteristics and implosion dynamics. These results offer insights into physics of z-pinch plasma heating mechanisms, and can be useful for inertial confinement fusion (ICF) and radiation physics research (see publications list below).

The recent PPDL research program is supported by the NNSA under DOE/ NV Cooperative Agreement DE-FC52-06NA27586, the NNSA under DOE Cooperative Agreement DE-F03-02NA00057, and two Sandia National Laboratories grants.
