The broad purpose of this research has been to investigate the dynamics of flowing plasmas. Attention has been given to the processes which transfer momentum between interacting ion species in counterstreaming plasmas produced by laser irradiation of a solid target. This investigation has evolved from an examination of collisional interactions with conventional diagnostics to an extensive study of collisionless momentum transfer in magnetic fields using a broad spectrum of diagnostics, including resonant optical techniques.
