Abstract : As a result of equipment modification a unique, flexible, experimental high vacuum system is available for simulating a wide variety of environments as to pressure, gas and water vapor content. A number of means of producing variable ionization levels within the system were studied and applied. Electron density measurements and their applications were considered. Possible means of communicating through ionized media were evaluated. (Author)
