Abstract

An ionization wave travelling ahead of the shock wave of the plasma jet, propagating in residual gas (nitrogen) of the plasma focus discharge, is detected by the laser-interferometry method at the plasma focus. Radial and axial distributions of electron densities of the shock wave and plasma jet are measured.
