Abstract: Here we report on the possible application of the capillar-discharge based plasma sources. Two different types of sources were investigated. In the first of them the plasma was produced inside the capillary between a cathode and a hollow anode by the explosive ablation of electrode material in the high-current ps discharges [I]. High-density (>IO" cm-'), pure, small diameter ( I d mm), long (5-20 cm) metalvapor columns have been produced. The application of the developed metal-vapor generator for the Z-scalin…
