    • Abstract


      In a low energy Mather-type plasma focus device, hot spots having temperature in the range of few KeV have been observed even 1 µs after the pinch disintegration and in regions away from the pinch area. These hot spots are perhaps created by the thermal runway due to temperature fluctuations in the background gas.
