The phenomena of harmonic generation in a plasma are investigated experimentally. A discharge was created in a rectangular waveguide and radiated by a high intensity X-band field propagating in the TE10 mode. Measurements on the variation of the generated second harmonic power with the incident X-band power, for argon gas at low pressures, were performed, and the results found to be in very good agreement with theory. Experimental data on the reflected X-band power as a function of the incident power are shown and compared with theoretical predictions. Author
