Here we report on the possible application of the capillary-discharge based plasma sources. Two different types of sources were investigated. In the first of them the plasma was produced inside the capillary between a cathode and a hollow anode by the explosive ablation of electrode material in the high-current μs discharges . High-density (>1019 cm -3), pure, small diameter (1-6 mm), long (5-20 cm) metal-vapor columns have been produced. The application of the developed metal-vapor generator for the Z-scaling of the Ne-like soft x-ray laser is expected. The possibility of utilization of the sub-milliradiant divergence Ne-like Ar capillary-discharge soft x-ray laser for different application, which involves mainly nano-technology and nano-machining, is also discussed.
