Abstract

In this contribution, we present a plasma physical model of a pulsed capillary discharge with a modulated radius. Using a 2D time-dependent model, we have modeled the plasma and wall properties of this channel. It was found that properties of the central plasma are different than the properties of a straight channel, while the properties depend only very weakly on the axial position. The behavior of the plasma near the wall and the wall itself was strongly influenced by the radial modulation, which leads to a very uneven thermal wall load. This is expected to cause significant damage to the wall material in a practical device.
