Abstract:

Research concerns the study of the electromagnetic properties of a plasma in a magnetic field for the express purpose of finding a solution to the re-entry communications blackout problem. Phase I will consist of measuring absorption and reflection of microwave energy from a slab of plasma permeated by a quasi-stationary magnetic field. Phase II will be a flight test of a magnetic window device on a hypersonic re-entry vehicle and will provide the ultimate test of the magnetic window concept. Present effort was directed toward refining the experimental apparatus and experimental techniques. Author
