Plasmoids for exoatmospheric propagation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The possibility of reducing the rate of density decay in portions of an unconfined plasma by initial profile shaping is analyzed. For transit times of interest to the SDI program, such structuring may result in gains of several orders of magnitude in on-target plasma density.
