Electron and ion density measurements ahead of strong shock waves are described. Measurements were made with a new collecting probe in a pressure driven shock tube with argon on the experimental gas. For initial pressures of 5 mmHg and Mach numbers of about 10 plasma density profiles were measured up to 150 cm ahead of the shock. Author
