Abstract : The first coherent results on wave propagation in the afterglow of a plasma, built up by high power, S-band, microwave pulses, are reported. This plasma is contained in a sealed glass tube of 5.5 mm internal diameter, partly introduced through a small hole into an S-band waveguide and with its axis parallel to the microwave E-field. By photomultiplier observation of the light in the afterglow, the propagation of two waves along the plasma column was detected. Measurements are summarized which were made with the resonant cavity technique for studying deviations from Ohm's law in high resistivity semiconductors. (Author)
