Application of polarization interferometers for Thomson scattering

Howard, John


Wide field-of-view, high transparency birefringent filters (essentially fixed delay interferometers) are proposed for incoherent Thomson scattering measurements of the temperature and density of plasma free electrons. For thermal electrons, the optical coherence of the Thomson scattered light at an appropriately chosen optical path delay, is a unique function of the electron temperature and density. The detection system utilizes a single filter combined with imaging optics and dual detector...[Show more]
