Abstract:

Coaxial plasma guns are used to create physical conditi ons plasma and dense plasma foci of interest to the Air Force. Experimental and theoretical coaxial plasma gun research has been performed since the early 1960s to the present. Research on coaxial plasma gun topics has been done in the Soviet Union, East and West Europe, Japan, the United States, and the Third World. This report is the second bibliographic collection of unclassified unlimited distribution references dealing with coaxial plasma guns. The first collection was prepared in September 1988. The references deal with the theory, operational behavior, performance and applications of coaxial plasma guns and dense plasma focuses foci under laboratory research conditions. Other related topics are referenced as well. A total of 1050 separate documents and reports are listed. jhd
