Abstract:

Measurements of discharge arc loss and leakage loss at S-band in a transverse magnetic field are discussed for the noble gases helium, neon, argon and for the Penning mixture 1 argon 99 neon. The range of pressures investigated extends from 72 microns to about 25 millimeters. Further analysis o magnetic field recovery time theory has shown that in the low pressure limit, resonant peaks in the afterglow can be used to indicate electron density. Author
