Abstract:

The document refers to the results of a program aimed at improving knowledge of the scattering of electromagnetic waves from turbulent plasma jet. Chapter I covers the task on the theory-experiment comparison of the backscattered data obtained last year. Several theoretical models are developed and applied to compare with the experimental results. In Chapter II, an experimental technique is provided to measure the modification of the electromagnetic field in turbulent plasma. Measurements are made for both direct and cross polarized fields for a range of density from underdense to near critical. Author
