An experimental study on hard x-ray production in a small plasma focus device operating in a few hundreds of Joule is presented. A threshold in the voltage drop on the pinch was observed for the x-ray emission. A comparison with Dreicer theory for electrons runaway in plasmas yield significant agreement. The study was performed at a constant pressure (1.8 mbar) of deuterium with three different anode lengths.
