High-frequency oscillations inside a laboratory Hall thruster were investigated. The calibration, experimental procedures and data analysis for high-frequency measurements were described. An electronic impedance-matching circuit was successfully built. Through high-frequency probing of the Hall thruster plasma, high frequency plasma waves were successfully characterized.
