IONIZATION IN HYPERSONIC WAKES. REVIEW OF MICROWAVE PROBE INSTRUMENTATION AND SUMMARY OF PRELIMINARY DATA
GM DEFENSE RESEARCH LABS SANTA BARBARA CA
Pagination or Media Count:
An outline is given of the progress which was made in the development of the focused microwave probe as a plasma diagnostics tool, and in the application of it to the study of ionization in hypersonic wakes. A major part of the development was concerned with instrumentation, the theoretical analysis of the interaction of the probe field with a plasma, data reduction, and interpretation of the results in terms of magnitudes and spatial variations of electron density and collision frequency.
