Instability development in the pinch induces a locally enhanced electric field that accelerates the charged particles to extraordinary high energies. Rapid discharge is the singular state of the ion source confirming high plasma impedance. High energy ion beam is correlated to the electrical discharge parameters and consequently the ion acceleration potential is directly related to the mean ion energy. Multi -MeV ions have been measured by magnetic spectrometry and nuclear activation yield-ratio to obtain the ion energy spectra and critically analyze the ion spectrum. A set of magnetic lens arranged in an optimized coil configuration results in medical grade radioactivity of 0.5 GBq for a low energy plasma focus. High energy proton beams enables evaluating the sensitivity of link-board components and the error structure identification, with a significant probability of 0.1 per proton.
