Abstract:

A description is presented of the theoretical and experimental work performed on the propagation of electromagnetic waves along plasma columns in logitudinal magnetic fields. Theoretical work includes completion of the basic theory for propagation along plasma columns in magnetic fields derivation of Brillouin diagrams and discussion of particularly significant limits and preliminary analyses of the non-uniform plasma case. Experimental work includes measurements of basic propagation parameters transmitted signal wavelength and group velocity and of physical plasma parameters as the electron density.
