Abstract : The properties of plasmas which are useful for coupling to beam-plasma amplifiers are discussed. The characteristics of PIG discharge plasmas are reviewed with emphasis on inhomogeneities. A method of solving Maxwell's equations in a right circular cylinder containing an axially inhomogeneous plasma is presented and the design of a universal coupling test vehicle is described.
