An experimental study of the physical processes in the high-density, ablation-controlled plasmas produced by the capillary discharges is described. The principal role of the explosive ablation of an electrode surface in the generation of dielectric-vapor plasmas is demonstrated. How these phenomena determine the plasma density and temperature is shown. The conventional models of the physics in ablation-controlled plasmas do not predict the phenomena. © 1999 Published by Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
