Abstract : The area of investigation of Mr James Faith is primarily on with the scattering and generation of microwaves by a spatially periodic and rapidly time varying plasma. The results indicate that this plasma device works as a dc to ac converter. Ms. Ruthie Lyle is the other student supported by the DOD AASERT program. Her research deals with the potential application of plasma electromagnetic absorption and scattering for shielding objects from detection by conventional radar systems. A quasiparticle theory based on Wigner distribution function has been developed to study wave propagation and scattering in a periodically structured plasma.
