Abstract : Coaxial plasma guns are used to create plasmas. Experimental and theoretical coaxial plasma gun research has been performed since the early 1960s to the present. Research on coaxial plasma gun topics has been done in the Soviet Union, both Eastern and Western Europe, Japan and the United States. This report is a bibliographic collection of unclassified unlimited distribution references dealing with coaxial plasma guns directly or indirectly. These references deal with the theory, operational behavior or applications of coaxial plasma guns under both laboratory and research conditions. Other systems related to coaxial plasma guns (such as the 2-pinch, dense plasma focus, compact toroids and other plasma sources) are referenced as well. A total of 771 separate English language references are listed. Keywords: Plasma guns; Plasma sources; Plasma accelerators; Plasma sheaths; Plasma jets; Coaxial geometry; Bibliography.
