Abstract:

Study concerned the deflection of an electromagnetic wave in passing through the atmosphere. Experiments carried out with 10-cm wave length proved that shorter wave lengths are more satisfactory for performing exact measurements employing a paraffin prism of 55-cm diameter.

Study concerned the deflection of an electromagnetic wave in passing through the atmosphere. Experiments carried out with 10-cm wave length proved that shorter wave lengths are more satisfactory for performing exact measurements employing a paraffin prism of 55-cm diameter. Work in plasma penetration investigation by the heterodyne method, involved an extension of the device to perform static as well as pulse measurements.
