Abstract:

This report describes a theoretical and experimental investigation of RF emission from a magnetized plasma. Very intense bursts of microwave energy have been measured from a high energy discharge through a P.I.G. type magnetic field configuration. Peak powers of above 1KW have been measured in pulses of X-band energy typically tens to hundreds of nanoseconds long. The experimental program is described and some theoretical explanations of the results are included. Author
