This thesis describes the development and application of a new, non-invasive, diagnostic based on far forward scattering(FFS) of electromagnetic radiation for investigating density fluctuations in fusion research plasmas.
The spatial distribution and phase of the oscillations induced on the profile of a Gaussian laser beam transmitted through a disturbed refractive medium can be predicted in terms of the characteristics of the disturbance, which can in turn be deduced from them. The ...Expand abstract
