Shaped charge injection of field-aligned barium and calcium plasma to investigate the physics of mass-dependent ion acceleration.
Principal Investigator: Wescott, E.M.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994
Summary: Beams of barium and calcium ions, from a rocket launched from Poker Flats, Alaska, will be released into the aurora. These beams will be observed using two low-light-level TV systems set up outside the Upper Air Station in Fort Smith. Each system will be filtered for barium ion light and calcium ion light respectively. The data will be recorded on video tape. The experiment will take place nea...
