Abstract : This report describes an experimental diagnostic program that studies the spectral distribution of the charged and neutral particles in a weakly ionized, thermally produced, turbulent flow. The power spectral density function (as well as the correlation coefficient) has been measured for ions, electrons, and neutrals using an electrostatic ion probe, a microwave electron probe, and a laser transmission experiment. The results indicate that the spectra of all the particles in the turbulent plasma are identical. (Author)
