Generation of pure, metal-vapor plasmas with peak densities above 1019cm-3 is reported. The plasma production is based on the explosive ablation of electrode material in the capillary μs discharge. The plasma density is controlled by varying the discharge parameters. High purity and density were achieved by optimizing the electrode configuration, the capillary material, and dimensions.

Abstract

Generation of pure, metal-vapor plasmas with peak densities above 1019cm-3 is reported. The plasma production is based on the explosive ablation of electrode material in the capillary μs discharge. The plasma density is controlled by varying the discharge parameters. High purity and density were achieved by optimizing the electrode configuration, the capillary material, and dimensions.
