Abstract:

The electrical conductivity of an argon-potassium plasma is measured in an induced electric field with a static gas temperature of 1300-1500K, pressure in the stream 0.04 atm. The currents flowing between electrodes were studied, as well as the cathode and anode voltage drop on potassium-activated electrodes. During optical measurements, the influence of the plasmotron arc on the spectrum and electrical conductivity of the plasma was studied. Author
