INVESTIGATION OF A PLASMA FROM AN OCCLUDED GAS, COLD PLASMA SOURCE
Results are given for various measurements made on a plasma from a hydrogen‐loaded titanium washer mounted at a dc magnetic mirror (∼6 kG), the power being supplied to the source by a variable lengthExpand

Experimental Evidence for Beam-Plasma Interaction in a Low-Pressure Argon Discharge
Experimental evidence is presented that an unmodulated electron beam moving through a homogeneous plasma is unstable. A 40-mm long Ar discharge is observed by probe methods, and the densities andExpand

Traveling Density Waves in Positive Columns
The continuity equations for positive ions and for electrons coupled to each other by the Coulomb force and the effect of ionizing collisions have a solution representing traveling density wavesExpand

The Multiple Scattering of Fast Electrons
An extensive cloud-chamber investigation of the scattering of fast electrons (3-11 Mev) by foils of various elements has been completed. The foils were of such thickness that the resultant averageExpand

Experimental Study of Tonks‐Dattner Resonances in Rare‐Gas Plasmas
Tonks‐Dattner resonances were studied in active discharges of neon, argon, and xenon in the milliTorr pressure region where self‐excited moving striations are also present. The observed resonanceExpand
