ABSTRACT
Presents a study that reported a series of spectrally resolved measurements on an argon plasma produced using a gas puff load driven by a high-power electron. Effects of mass motion Doppler shifts on the spectra; Measurement of systematic blue shifts of line positions in the source when viewed axially; Discussion on how the spectral lines classified in the study can be used to measure the density and velocity of the imploding plasma in the gas puff z pinch.
