Abstract

This research is to show the effects of plasma on varying frequencies of electromagnetic waves. This is to show the capability of using plasma to have a controllable effect on a specific wave frequency that is passing through it. A vacuum wave guild was designed and used to use the plasma at a lower voltage threshold. Different frequencies were then sent through this wave guild and the effects on magnitude and phase where then measured.

Biography

Nicholas O’Gorman has had a love of designing and building for since he was a child. he learned of the OURE program offered at Rolla and took it as an opportunity to work on innovative ideas. He worked on two different projects involving robotics, a controllable humanoid robot and a surveillance robot. However, during his time at S&T, he learned that his passions lied within the field of electromagnetics and energy flows. While helping Matt Paliwoda on his research for his masters with plasma, he found a field that possessed both. With a large interest in the plasma field, he began working to learn about how plasma works and what can be done in that field.
