Interferometric density measurements in laser-induced and spark discharge plasmas

Nathan D. Peters, Sreenath Gupta, Ben Akih-Kumgeh

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemConference contribution


The early phase of laser and spark ignition is investigated using two color interferometry. The measurements yield electron and neutral number densities. They also reveal differences in the two types of plasma generation.
