Abstract:

The radiation impedance of various sources is computed and it is shown that the average Poynting vector has the direction of the group velocity. The one dimensional problem of R-f confinement was investigated and solved completely by analytic means. Boltzmanns equation was solved by means of dyadic Greens functions to establish a conductivity tensor valid for elevated temperatures. Temperature and collision effects in a plasma were investigated and dispersion surfaces computed. Photo-emission from a tungsten point was obtained with light from a ruby laser.
