A magnetoplasma microwave detector which utilizes a quenching of light output in the afterglow of a magnetoplasma has been developed and is described. The behavior of this detector in terms of gas parameters, magnetic field and microwave signal is discussed. Suggestions for improving detector sensitivity are presented. Author
