Abstract:

This report contains the theory, analyses and computations performed between October 20, 1987 and October 30, 1991 on plasma filled diodes, opening switches, and z-pinches. This includes the first quantitative estimate of plasma blowoff from surfaces in plasma opening switches, the first nine-dependent particle-in-cell simulation of a one-dimensional plasma opening switch or plasma-filled diode, the first two-dimensional dynamical model of a plasma diode, and seminal reviews of z-pinch and vacuum spark research.
