The production of thin, axially symmetric bubbles between electrodes in a plasma-focus discharge chamber at pressures below 1 torr is described. A theory of their use as plasma lines (PLs) is given. A mechanism of imploding such liners using a plasma-focus snowplow (SP) for the accumulation of magnetic energy is described. The transfer of the discharge current I from the SP to the PL should result in a substantial amplification of the dI/dt as seen by the PL, resulting in very high density of the latter. Possible applications of such dense plasma liners in ICF are mentioned
