Experimental results are presented which show that r.f. power at frequencies near the lower hybrid frequency couples resonantly into a standing whistler wave. For an input power flux of less than 5 W densities above 10” cm-3 with close to 100% ionization have been achieved. Measured density, temperatures and wave fields are presented and are used as input parameters for a theoretical model. 1. I N T R O D U C T I O N IT HAS been long known that it is possible to ionize a gas by radio frequency… CONTINUE READING
