A z-pinch (or zeta pinch) is a type of plasma confinement system that uses an electrical current in the plasma to generate a magnetic field that compresses it. This volume, edited by Chittenden (Imperial College, UK) contains 82 papers from the July 2005 International Conference on Dense Z-pinches, demonstrating the state-of-the-art in z-pinch research related to inertial confinement fusion Inertial confinement fusion (ICF) is a process where nuclear fusion reactions are initiated by heating and compressing a fuel target, typically in the form of a pellet that most often contains a mixture of deuterium and tritium. , x-ray radiation sources, and high energy density plasma physics Noun 1. plasma physics - the branch of physics concerned with matter in its plasma phase
natural philosophy, physics - the science of matter and energy and their interactions; "his favorite subject was physics" . The papers are organized into sections dealing with wire array z-pinches, x- pinches, gas-puffs, plasma focus, capillary discharges and soft x-ray lasers, pulsed power Pulsed power is the term used to describe the science and technology of accumulating energy over a relatively long period of time and releasing it very quickly thus increasing the instantaneous power. drivers, and diagnostic techniques and spectroscopy.
