Building on earlier research investigating geophysical cyclotron wave emissions [1,2], a new “linear plasma” experiment is under construction to test multifrequency microwave interactions in magnetised plasma. The magnetic field will reach up to 0.05T, and the plasma will be created by a helicon wave launched from an RF antenna. This will produce a large, dense, cool plasma with potential for a high ionisation fraction. Fixed frequency, and wideband sources and amplifiers will provide microwave beams for the multi-signal interaction experiments. The paper will present progress on this system.
