Paper Abstract

A series of experiments using fast photography and interferometry have been performed to investigate the non-steady aero-acoustic effects in large scale, atmospheric UV-preionized CO2 laser discharges. Of primary concern were the density disturbances resulting from the sudden temperature and pressure excursions created by the electric discharge. A short discussion of the nature of the discharge generated disturbances is included and experimental results are presented.
