Low energy plasma focus simulate astrophysical phenomena

Author(s): G.M.El-Aragi

Several phenomena recorded in dense plasma focus (DPF) discharges seem to reproduce astrophysical observations. Time-integrated ion measurements were performed with pinhole cameras equipped with solid-state nuclear track detectors (of type CR-39). The ion-pinhole cameras were placed at an angle zero degreewith respect to the anode axis. The plasma ion tracks (cluster of micro-beam) is laboratory analog to the formation of globular clusters in Milky-way galaxy. CCZ model (core surrounded by co-central zones) is proposed to estimate the ion track density of dense plasma focus discharge. The cluster morphology of plasma ion tracks formed by DPF are laboratory similar to the formation of the globular cluster of our galaxy.
