A What is the photon direction in Z-pinch

  1. Jul 14, 2016 #1
    In high energy Z-pinch, lots of X-ray emit. Which direction is the highest density of photon radiation?

    thanks for your input.
    I speculate the most x-photons radiating along the pinched wire, the side radiation direction (orthogonal to wire) may be caused by scattering, and only take a small fraction.
