The development of non-thermal and metastable ionization for closed cycle MHD electrical power generation systems with either metal vapors or seeded gases for naval applications is considered. The program shall first, demonstrate non-thermal and metastable ionization, and second, generate actual power with such ionization. Experiments on non-thermal ionization are being conducted in the 2 in. x 2 in. tube and the argon-barium diode. Power generation is being conducted in the shock tube.
