The Use of Ion Probes in Re-Entry Physics
Abstract : Classical (Langmuir) probe theory is reviewed and the conditions under which it is applicable to the re-entry physics problem identified. Some later developments in probe theory, whichExpand

Boundary-Layer Ion Density Profiles As Measured by
Ion-density profiles in boundary layers associated with supersonic flow of shock-heated air over a flat plate have been measured by cylindrical and flush-mounted electrostatic probes. A method ofExpand

Microwave Scattering From an Underdense Turbulent Plasma
The bistatic radar cross section of an underdense, inhomogeneous turbulent plasma was measured at X-band and the results were compared with a theoretical model. The turbulent plasma was formed byExpand

Measurements of the Charged Particles of an Equilibrium Turbulent Plasma
A pair of diagnostic techniques for the measurement of the statistical properties of the ionized particles of an equilibrium turbulent plasma have been developed including an electrostatic probe andExpand

Spectral Distribution of Charged Particles in a Turbulent Plasma
An attempt was made to determine whether the spectral distribution of charged particles in a weakly ionized turbulent flow follows that of the neutral particles. An electrostatic ion probe and aExpand

MEASUREMENT OF THE SPECTRUM OF IONIZED AND NEUTRAL DENSITY FLUCTUATIONS IN A THERMALLY PRODUCED TURBULENT PLASMA. PART II.
Abstract : N ORDER TO DEVELOP AN ELECTROMAGNETIC SCATTERING MODEL FOR THE TURBULENT WAKE, A SUITABLE AUTOCORRELATION FUNCTION OR POWER SPECTRAL DENSITY OF THE ELECTRON DENSITY INHOMOGENEITIES ISExpand
Radar Interferometry Measurements of a Turbulent Plasma
A laboratory experiment has been conducted that demonstrates the applicability of radar interferometry to the measurement of the width of a turbulent plasma column. This is done by inferring theExpand
