Tomographic interferometry of a filtered high-current vacuum arc plasma

Warr, George B.; Tarrant, Richard N.; Bilek, Marcela M. M.; McKenzie, David R.; Harris, Jeffrey H.; Howard, John; Blackwell, Boyd D.


Tomography of a plasma enables the distribution of electron density to be visualized. We report on the design of two tomographic interferometer systems used to measureplasma electron density distributions in a high-current pulsed cathodic vacuum arc. The method is shown to be capable of microsecond time resolution. The spatial resolution of the quasioptical interferometer operating at 2 mm wavelength is 20 mm and the spatial resolution of the waveguide-based interferometer operating at 8 mm...[Show more]
