Abstract
THIS NOVEL AND INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE EMPLOYS ON-BOARD HARMONIC AND INTERMODULATION-PRODUCT FREQUENCY GENERATION TO PROVIDE RF SIGNALS THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE ELECTRON DENSITIES IN THE LAMINAR AND TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYERS ON A HYPERSONIC MODEL. THE ONLY ON-BOARD COMPONENT(S) IS (ARE)A MICROWAVE DIODE(S) FROM THE HARMONIC AND INTERMODULATION PRODUCT GENERATIONS. EXCITING SIGNALS ARE SUPPLIED BY RF SOURCES ILLUMINATING THE MODEL.
