Abstract : An apparatus to study the generation of plasma in air was designed, fabricated, and assembled. A 400-liter test cell was developed to study plasma in air which has a pressure that can be varied from standard atmospheric pressure at sea level to 1 mTorr at 300,000 ft. Plasma is generated by impact ionization of air due to bombardment by a 100-kev electron beam. Microwave diagnostics quantify electron number density and optical diagnostics quantify ozone production. A particle in cell… CONTINUE READING
