With an arc-driven shock tube, laser induced fluorescence, and a multipoint density diagnostic technique, we study the turbulence behind an ionizing shock wave in the presence of a magnetic field. The magnetic field is directed either parallel to or antiparallel to the direction of the shock wave’s propagation, and is configured in such a way as to couple with turbulent velocity fluctuations in the plane perpendicular to the direction of flow. We find that the magnetic field can be used to reduce the turbulent energy in a plasma system. Further, when the evolution to turbulence is treated as a second-order phase transformation, the critical turbulent energy decreases with increasing magnetic field.
