This report is a popularized article on hydrogen plasma research and thermonuclear reactions. Methods and techniques for photographic analysis of a short lifetime plasma are discussed. Several methods for density and pressure measurements of the plasma are proposed and discussed. One of them is based on the state of equilibrium between plasma pressure and the surrounding magnetic field a second a piezoelectric manometer a third is based on probing the plasma with radio waves and a fourth employs measurement of the over-all intensity of the emission from the plasma.
