Ablation processes of ribbon-array loads, as well as wire-array loads for comparison, were investigated on Qiangguang-1 accelerator. The ultraviolet framing images indicate that the ribbon-array loads have stable passages of currents, which produce axially uniform ablated plasma. The end-on x-ray framing camera observed the azimuthally modulated distribution of the early ablated ribbon-array plasma and the shrink process of the x-ray radiation region. Magnetic probes measured the total and precursor currents of ribbon-array and wire-array loads, and there exists no evident difference between the precursor currents of the two types of loads. The proportion of the precursor current to the total current is 15% to 20%, and the start time of the precursor current is about 25 ns later than that of the total current. The melting time of the load material is about 16 ns, when the inward drift velocity of the ablated plasma is taken to be 1.5 × 107 cm/s.

    Context. The corona of the Sun is dominated by emission from loop-like structures. When observed in X-ray or extreme ultraviolet emission, these million K hot coronal loops show a more or less constant cross section. Aims: In this study we show how the interplay of heating, radiative cooling,...

    The effect of the ratio of Sn sphere diameter to laser focal spot size (SD/FSS) on conversion efficiency (CE) from laser to in-band (2%) 13.5 nm extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light was investigated by fixing the laser spot size and irradiating variable diameter spheres. It was found that a minimum...

    A new type of carbon pellet ablation in the high-density ion-heated plasma of the Wendelstein 7-AS stellarator is studied. In contrast to conventional ablation in the form of atoms or clusters, this type of ablation features the emission of small (micrometer) carbon particles from the surface of...

    Very high energy (VHE, energy E ⩽ 100?GeV) γ-rays from cosmological sources are attenuated due to the interaction with photons of the extragalactic background light (EBL) in the ultraviolet to infrared wavelength band. The EBL, thus, leaves an imprint on the observed energy spectra of...
