Hot spots produced by gas-puff z-pinch plasma which are high energy density plasma regions radiate intensive soft x-rays. Gas-puff z-pinch is expected to industrial applications such as soft x-ray lithography, microscopy and laser, in these cases, the scattering of hot spots is important when the gas-puff z-pinch plasma is used as a point source of soft x-ray. Previous results in our study showed the reduction of radial displacement of hot spots in positive voltage shots by using IPP(inductive pulsed power) system. In this paper, the voltage polarities effect on the z-pinch plasma behaviour, soft x-ray emission and spatial distribution of hot spots are described.
