Abstract

A description of a shock tube set-up conjugated with a dielectric section in which an electric discharge developed in the form of a breakdown ionization wave with sublight speed is presented. This set-up allows to investigate plane shock wave propagation in an uniform, highly excited plasma and the breakdown of the gas gap by the shock wave in a wide range of the gas parameters. All disturbances existing in previous investigations of shock wave propagation in plasma with plasma production by glow or/and radio-frequency discharge such as flowing of the plasma by the gas flow etc. are eliminated by this method.
