The axial variation of the electron density and the neutral gas density along a mercury plasma column were measured. The electron density was determined from measurements of the shift of the resonance frequency of a cylindrical microwave cavity operating in the TM sub 010-mode. From measurement of the attenuation of mercury resonance line radiation at 2537A the neutral gas density was determined. Both the electron and the neutral gas densities were found to increase towards the anode. Author
