Abstract : The development of a first order theory for the transmission characteristics of a magneto-plasma resonance isolator employing the TM11 mode in a rectangular waveguide is continued using a tensor permittivity plasma model. The results are compared with those obtained previously where an equivalent scalar permittivity was used. Effect of variation of the magnetostatic field over the plasma volume is investigated. Some previously obtained expermental data is compared with the theoretical results. Development of a hot cathode discharge for use as a plasma package is described and some preliminary measurements on electromganetic wave interaction with the discharge are given. (Author)
