What is it about?

The proposed model will be useful both for estimating the channel parameters and for deciphering the dynamics of radiation scattered by the plasma dipole.

Why is it important?

The development of such an approach will allow one to study the evolution of multiplasmoid structures of a high-pressure MW discharge. May be a microwave (MW) plasma channel find its applications for off-body non-electrode modification of a gas flow (plasma aerodynamics) and in the plasma assisted combustion process.


The discharge structures of the centimeter wavelength range recorded by high-speed cameras of the visible range display the parameters of the incident microwave wave. In this way, they visualize the properties of the incident microwave wave and display the fundamental properties of nature. More over they allow for remote energy contribution to plasma systems.
