Measured and calculated (LSP) voltages for a nominal shot.
Visible images of electrode plasmas, taken 25, 45, 65, and 185 ns after the start of current rise.
X-ray spot images taken 10, 25, 40, and 55 ns after the beginning of the current rise.
Interferogram obtained 90 ns after the beginning of the current rise.
