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 of cylindrical-p robe data interpretation presented accounts for the effects of a plasma drift velocity. An appropriate method for flush-probe interpretation also is given. The experiments were carried out in a pressure-driven shock tube at 0.1 torr initial shock tube pressure, and ranged over five orders… Expand
