Summary

Experiments with CAPEX-U apparatus were done to more understand the differences between Ar and N active media created during the pinch compression, respectively. Capillary discharge current, X-ray narrow band radiation and EUV spectrum temporal behavior were measured. Results of laboratory experiments for both gas fillings under various currents and initial pressures are shown. Computer simulations show that current quasi-period shortening and higher amplitude is needed.
