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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
