Abstract : Essentially five topics were studied during this time period; three are essentially experimental investigations, and the other two are theoretical in nature. The five topics include: 1) Propagation of microwaves along a plasma column and harmonic generation of electrostatic ion cyclotron waves, 2) Imploding tube experiment, 3) RF Generated Current in a Magnetized Plasma Using a Slow Wave Structure, 4) Wave-Particle interaction at cyclotron resonances, and 5) Turbulent interaction between waves and charged particles.
