Pulsed power technology of switched-mode has been employed to design and build a high-
voltage pulsed-power supply as an efficient pulse drive unit for low energy plasma focus
devices (PFDs). The plasma focus has been widely investigated as a radiation source,
including as ion-beams, electron-beams and as a source of x-ray and neutron production,
providing considerable scope for use in a variety of technological situations. CR-39 solid-
state nuclear track detectors were employed as time integrated for registration the proton
emission. A Plasma Focus device (0.1 kJ, 15 kV) is studied as a pulsed X-ray source,
operated with hydrogn at a filling pressure in the range of 0.1 to 3 Torr. The time resolved X-
ray signals are measured with PIN diode detector .
