Abstract

Report on collective scattering of CO/sub 2/-laser light with optical homodyne detection. The emphasis lies on the measurement of spontaneously appearing turbulence in a medium density plasma (n/sub e/=10/sup 19/-10/sup 20/ m/sup -3/) with a c.w. low power CO/sub 2/-laser (P/sub i/ approximately=2W). The authors compare the fluctuation level measured by scattering with the level at frequencies below 1 MHz measured by optical probes. These optical probes measure the plasma light fluctuations
