Experiments to determine the spatial and temporal variations of the electron distribution of the high-density plasma were made using a laser interferometer with increased sensitivity. Spatial and temporal determination of the conductivity of the plasma was continued using this method and is described. Experimental determination of the plasma resistance was made. Also, its variation was noted to changes in hydrogen gas pressure and different capacitor bank voltages. Further experiments were made to determine the effects on the plasma resistance when impurity gases such as neon, krypton and xenon were added to the hydrogen gas. Author
