Abstract:

Experiments on conductivity profiling around a propagating electron beam were successfully performed during the Spring 1987 series of open-air propagation experiments on ATA at LLNL. Our measurements of both 10- and 35-GHz microwave interferometer measurements of real imaginary conductivity histories along chords at various y-offsets from the beam centerline and at two different locations along the propagating beam line.
