Theoretical and Experimental Studies of 35 GHz and 96 GHz Electromagnetic Wave Propagation in Plasma

Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 24, 179-192, 2012
Abstract
The 35GHz and 96GHz electromagnetic wave propagation characteristics in plasma are studied theoretically and experimentally in this paper. The variations of the incident electromagnetic wave attenuation along with the plasma density, collision frequency and electromagnetic wave frequency are acquired based on the physical model. The electromagnetic wave propagation properties in plasma are studied experimentally with the shock tube, and the experimental results match well with the theoretical ones. The theoretical and experimental results show that increasing the electromagnetic wave frequency is an alternative and effective method to solve the reentry blackout problems.
