Title: Temperature measurements in an argon plasma jet.
Authors: Ruddy, M. J.
Award date: 1975
Presented at: University of Leicester
Abstract: The aim of this study was to establish reliable temperature distributions, within an argon plasma jet in both the cases of an unconstrained jet discharging to the atmosphere and a jet impinging on a cooled metal surface under various input conditions. An optical technique, the Two Line Relative Intensity Method was employed with both Ionic/Atomic and Atomic/Atomic Line Combinations. Results are presented in Chapter 5 and are compared with published data in Chapter 6 and have been published.* Noise measurements have been made and represent an initial investigation into turbulent fluctuations within the jet. A novel technique of collimation and scanning of the plasma get is described in Appendix 3. *"Temperature and Noise Profiles in an Argon Plasma Jet". R.W. Maxwell and M.J. Ruddy, I.E.E.
