Abstract. In the experiments with the 3 kJ plasma focus device at the Sofia University are measured the basic characteristics, namely the discharge current, the current derivative, the soft X-ray and the hard X-ray emission from the plasma. The average dose of the X-Ray emission is a few tenth of Sv per shot. A study of the influence of soft X-rays upon biologic objects has been started.
