Electron density profiles of a low density supersonic argon plasma were obtained using 35-GHz microwave attenuation data and spectral intensity measurements of the 4158- and 6032-A argon emission lines. The integrated profile data from the spectral intensity and microwave attenuation measurements were inverted to local values of the emission coefficient and absorption coefficient, respectively, using an Abel inversion technique. The profile data and results of the inversion are presented.
