A magnetically stabilized plasma focus with controlled modulations has been demonstrated for the first time. A 3-mm-diam plasma focus with two wiggler periods of 1 cm each was kept stable for about 30 ns. Similar configurations with shorter periods could be used as intense wigglers for short-wavelength free-electron lasers.
