Plasma Focus Device

 

A dense plasma focus (DPF) is a plasma device that produces a pulse of hot and dense plasma. The plasma produces is so hot and dense that it can emit various radiation such as X-ray and particle beams. The plasma is formed by the electromagnetic acceleration and compression. It was invented in the early 1960s by J.W. Mather and also independently by N.V. Filippov. The researchers in the center are working on the plasma focus system as pulsed neutron, X-ray and ion beam source for material surface modification.
