The project is concerned with the interaction of ion beams and plasmas, and their mutual destabilization. The goal is to characterize this interaction using novel diagnostic techniques. In the experiment, a gas discharge plasma was to be constructed through which ions could be accelerated. A two laser system would be assembled and variations of laser induced fluorescence LIF diagnostics used to measures the changes in ion properties of the beam and the plasma consequent on the instability.
