The Analysis of Plasma by Light Scattering
The unprecedented brightness of laser sources has made practical for the first time the use of Thomson scattering of light as a plasma diagnostic tool. In addition to the simple low-density process, where scattering intensities from the individual plasma electrons are summed, it has become possible to exploit the theory of plasma fluctuations in order to extend the analysis of scattering data to densities where collective effects predominate.
