The magnetoplasma compressor, a quasi stationary plasma accelerator, is a source of supersonic compression plasma flow. High plasma parameters of compression flow, large flow velocity and discharge duration enable their efficient usage for development of new plasma technologies, including material surface modification, creation of sub microstructures and nanostructures. In this paper spatial and temporal distribution of emissivity was studied using inverse Abel transform. This has been realized in LabVIEW environment. The plasma flow generated by quasi stationary plasma accelerators can be used for simulation of high energy plasma interaction with different materials of interest for fusion experiments. Surface phenomena are results of specific conditions during plasma flow interaction with target surface. As the next step in our research, spectral analysis of the plasma area around targets surface, after interaction between target and plasma, generated by magnetoplasma compressor, is planned. The first material which will be subjected to interaction with plasma will be a carbon fiber - material of big importance for divertor region in fusion devices.
