Abstract : IN Part I the theoretical relationships between the propagation processes of electromagnetic waves in an ionized gas and its dielectric characteristics are discussed. Part II concerns work performed with a view to developing the plasma penetration unit. At first the different methods for the investigation of plasma by means of electromagnetic waves are shown and thereafter a detailed description of the measuring device with automatic frequency control developed by us will be given. Part III concerns the development of investigations into the cavity resonator method. In the same way as our penetration device, the cavity resonator can be used to study periodic as well as single ionization and recombination processes in plasma. In Part IV the results of the measurements will be discussed which were performed on the two plasma measuring devices with a view to checking the suitability of the devices. (Author)
