Abstract:

The inverse scattering problem of deducing the structure of a column of ionized gas from its microwave scattering properties is solved for a homogeneous column and a column which is sufficiently dilute that the electrons may be assumed to be independent scatters. Criteria are presented which may be applied to experimental data to determine which of the above models if either is applicable.
