In 1991 a group of scientists from the Angara 5 pulsed power facility at the Kurchatov Institute in Troitsk, Russia had determine the thermal emission from an implosion of xenon gas onto an annular, molybdenum doped foam liner to be 30 TW/cm2. This represents an extremely efficient conversion of energy into a high fluence radiation field. In order to verify this claim and better understand the process of producing radiation by means of a Z- pinch plasma device, a series of experiments were proposed through a collaboration from Sandia National Laboratory-Albuquerque, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
