Generation of axisymmetric stable, long plasma channels with temperatures of 8 eV and electron densities ∼1019cm-3 by a high-current evaporating-wall capillary discharge with prepulse ablative plasma is reported. Results of spectroscopic measurements of the temperature and electron density of plasma produced in a polyethylene capillary are presented. The discharge provides a convenient source of dense highly ionized plasmas for laser-plasma interaction studies. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
