  author={Kamran Akhtar and John E. Scharer and Shane M. Tysk and Enny Kho},
A general formulation for the measurement of plasma density and effective collision frequency for lowly as well as highly, collisional plasmas using millimeter wave interferometry is presented. In the presence of high density and collisionality at high gas pressures where the collision frequency ~n! is of the order of both the plasma ( vp) and the wave… CONTINUE READING
