Abstract:

This report describes the research equipment purchased and how that equipment is being utilized to carry out research in the area of high temperature fluid mechanics and plasma dynamics resulting from laser supported plasmas. The development of the fundamental relationships that explain energy transport mechanisms in laser sustained plasmas require a wide range of experiments to be carried out. The equipment described in this document are a major component of the required experiments.
