Annotation These 98 papers from the June 2002 conference present scientific and technical advances in z-pinch physics, z-pinch diagnostics, pulsed power technology, plasma focus, and modeling. The results of several wire array and gas puffs experiments are reported as are potential applications for the z-pinch. Topics include the effect of discrete wires on the implosion dynamics of wire array z-pinches, gas puff radiation performance as a function of radial mass distribution, the X pinch as a point source for point-projection x-ray radiography, and neutron emission characteristics of a high current plasma focus.
