Abstract

The application of the method of polarization spectroscopy of Stark states to calculating the electron distribution function in a plasma is considered. A formula is obtained which relates the polarization tensors to the parameters of a model distribution function describing a group of fast electrons with beam properties. It is suggested that the polarization tensor can be found by using radiation from resonance levels displaying a marked Stark effect.
