Abstract:

This paper deals with the design of a dense plasma focus device as an engineering project. Essentially this approach can be summarized as follows First, an introduction dealing with a general discussion of plasma devices focusing on the role of a dense plasma focus device as a useful tool in future research second, an explanation of the operation of the dense plasma focus third, a general design discussion of the dense plasma focus device fourth, specification of a realizable system and finally, a discussion of the problems encountered in constructing this design and observations concerning the effectiveness of this dense plasma focus design.
