This paper is focused on the plasma diagnostics utilized for the characterization of a hypersonic nitrogen flow. The nitrogen flow has been utilized for a test campaign on Magneto Fluid Dynamics interaction in the frame of the ASI (Italian Space Agency) funded project CAST (Advanced Aerothermodynamic Configurations for Space Transport). Microwave absorption measurements have been performed in plasma free jet conditions in order to determine the electron number density of the plasma flow. Further investigations have been performed utilizing a LIF measurement technique.

Abstract

This paper is focused on the plasma diagnostics utilized for the characterization of a hypersonic nitrogen flow. The nitrogen flow has been utilized for a test campaign on Magneto Fluid Dynamics interaction in the frame of the ASI (Italian Space Agency) funded project CAST (Advanced Aerothermodynamic Configurations for Space Transport). Microwave absorption measurements have been performed in plasma free jet conditions in order to determine the electron number density of the plasma flow. Further investigations have been performed utilizing a LIF measurement technique.
