Abstract:

The report summarizes the studies related to collision processes in gaseous plasmas during the period July 1965 to January 1966. During this period the papers, Afterglow Studies in Noble Gas-Hydrogen Mixtures, J. Appl. Phys. 36, 3740 1965 and Ion Mobilities in Helium, Phys. Rev. Letters 15, 1018 1965 were published and two papers Afterglow Studies in Helium A Technique for Simultaneously Measuring Ion Densities, Metastable Atom Densities and Light Emission in Decaying Gaseous Plasmas were accepted for publication. Three papers were presented at the Eighteenth Gaseous Electronics Conference October 1965, Minneapolis. Summaries are given of conclusions resulting from studies by means of the SLEAMA I system and the Mobility-Mass Identification Tube. Also discussed are modifications planned for the SLEAMA systems, and miscellaneous results. Author
