Abstract:

Laser interferometer diagnostic of the high-density, magnetically compressed hydrogen plasma were made. Detailed studies of spatial and temporal variations of electron density were made along with the conductivity of the plasma. Experiments were made to determine the effects of impurities in the plasma by mixing a small amount of neon gas 1 with the hydrogen. These effects are discussed. Further experiments were conducted to determine whether the unidentified impurity lines observed in the spectrum of the pure hydrogen plasma were due to the fluorescence of the discharge tube.
