Effort in the design of a laboratory device for measuring the properties of plasma at 10 cm concerned the development of a plasma penetration unit. In order to reduce mismatchings, the entire circuit employs waveguide techniques.A new plasma container of a diameter of 45 cm and a height of 20 cm was established in connection with the penetration device. The container is closed on both sides with glass plates of 45 mm thickness and has three inlets designed for the anode, the cathode, and the probe electrode. The container was tested under vacuum up to 0.1 torr. During these tests, the glass plates had to withstand a pressure of about 1.6 tons.
