Development of an intense optically pumped laser of narrow bandwidth in the far infrared

Abstract:

This thesis describes an experimental study of high intensity, pulsed, optically pumped, far-infrared (FIR) lasers. The work was motivated by the need for a radiation source for the measurement of the ion temperature in magnetically confined, high temperature plasmas (e.g. tokamak plasmas), using Thomson scattering. Constraints imposed by the plasma parameters, the scattering geometry and available detector sensitivities lead to the requirement of a radiation source wavelength between 30a...
