Abstract:

A shock tube study of the ionization process in neon and its coupling with an axially symmetric magnetic field is described. Shock Mach number was about 14 and the calculated electron densities were 0 10 to the 16th powercc. The increase in plasma luminosity from the upstream to downstream side of the coil when the magnetic field 25 kilogauss range was present, stimulated an investigation of the light emission with and without the magnetic field. The emission data and pressure measurements were used to substantiate the model of a magnetically formed diffuser. Author
