The dissipation of electromagnetic waves in plasmas by N. G Basov( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This anthology includes articles on experimental studies of the interaction of high-power electromag netic waves with collisionless plasmas and with electrons. The nonlinear interaction of waves with plasmas has been investigated both under free space conditions and in waveguides. A study of secondary-emission dis charges was made in order to ascertain their possible effect on measurements in waveguides. The results presented here on the interaction of high-power waves with plasmas and electrons are of interest to a wide range of physicists and engineers concerned with various questions on the interaction of electromagnetic radiation with plasmas, including microwave heating of plasmas and laser fusion. v CONTENTS An Experimental Investigation of Nonlinear Dissipation of Electromagnetic Waves in Inhomogeneous Collisionless Plasmas - G.M.

A Thomson scattering study of collisional-shock heated plasmas by Donald H McNeill( Book )

4 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomson scattering was used to obtain electron temperature and density profiles in deuterium plasmas produced by strong collisional shock waves. The transverse shock speeds were 3 to 25 cm/microsecond in 50 to 100 mTorr deuterium. Ruby laser light was incident at a right angle to the axis in the midpoint of the annular gap of an electromagnetically driven coaxial shock tube and scattered light was collected at 90 degrees.

Narrow H-alpha emission profiles in tokamaks : molecular origin and observational effects by Donald H McNeill( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The narrow hydrogen Balmer alpha profiles observed in tokamaks are explained in terms of the slow (approx. 0.3 eV) and fast (2 to 6 eV) excited atoms formed by dissociation of molecular hydrogen at the plasma edge. Extra widening of the spectrum in the wings can be explaind by Zeeman split H-alpha that is reflected from the vacuum vessel. This interpretation is consistent with available high-resolution data. The use of H-alpha as a diagnostic is discussed briefly
Edge region hydrogen line emission in the PDX tokamak( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Measurements of the H/sub .cap alpha./ line shape and of the spatial distribution of the H/sub .cap alpha./ emissivity in the PDX tokamak are interpreted in terms of molecular dissociation reactions at the plasma edge. The influx of molecules is shown to be roughly proportional to the edge emission intensity over a wide range of temperatures. The H₂ particle lifetime is estimated for various types of discharges in PDX
Balmer alpha emission and hydrogen atom energy in ion source discharges by Donald H McNeill( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The structure of the hydrogen Balmer alpha line emission profiles from three types of neutral beam injector ion source plasmas (filling pressure approx. 10 mTorr, electron density approx. 1 to 2 x 10¹² cm⁻³, electron temperature approx. 2 to 4 eV) is studied with the aid of a simple model for the neutral particle balance and H/sub .cap alpha./ emission. A large fraction of the H/sub .cap alpha./ is produced by dissociative excitation of H₂ and dissociative recombination of H₂, while the remainder is produced by excitation of H atoms, most of which have energies that are close to the characteristic H₂ dissociation energies. The H/sub .cap alpha./ linewidth is thus insensitive to the discharge operating conditions and equals approx. 0.27 A when only slow (approx. 0.3 eV) dissociatively excited atoms are present or approx. 0.35 A when fast (> 1 eV) atoms, apparently also produced in dissociation reactions, are present as well

Molecular origin of background light in Thomson scattering measurements by Donald H McNeill( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The plasma background light in Thomson scattering measurements is often far higher than expected for a pure hydrogen plasma. The spectral distribution of light from three plasmas (duration: 1 ms to steady state; electron density: below 10¹² to over 10¹⁴ cm⁻³; temperature: below 20 to over 1000 eV) and signal-to-noise and intensity data from the Thomson scattering systems used on them are compared with analytic estimates to show that in two of these plasmas molecular light dominates the spectrum, while in the other, molecular light is present, but bremsstrahlung is usually more intense. Knowledge of the mechanism for background light can aid in designing detection systems for Thomson scattering and provide information on the neutral species composition and effective charge of the plasma

Power balance in ELMO bumpy torus : bulk electrons and ions in a 37 kw discharge by D. H McNeill( Book )

2 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The power balance of the bulk electrons and ions in discharges with 37 kW of applied microwave power in the ELMO Bumpy Torus (EBT) is examined in a zero-dimensional model using data on the intensity and linewidth of the molecular and atomic hydrogen emission. At least 60% of the applied power is ultimately dissipated by processes involving the neutral particles, including dissociation of molecules, ionization of and radiation from atoms, and heating of cold electrons produced during atomic ionization. The molecular influx rate and the density of atoms are used independently to determine the bulk electron particle confinement time, and an upper bound estimate is made of the diffusional power loss from the bulk plasma electrons. Parameters derived from the basic spectroscopic data presented in this paper include the neutral atom density 2 - 5x10¹° cm⁻³, incident molecular flux 3 - 5x10¹⁵ cm⁻²s⁻¹, bulk ion temperature approx. =3 eV, and particle confinement time <1.1 ms. The bulk electron energy confinement time is 0.7 ms or less in the standard operating regime. Published data on the nonthermal electron and ion populations in the plasma are used to evaluate approximately the overall energy flow in the discharge. 54 refs
