Abstract

A study of coherent density fluctuations in a low density plasma using continuous wave CO/sub 2/ laser scattering diagnostics is reported. A simple and direct description of collective scattering theory from monochromatic electrostatic waves is presented. The diagnostic technique is described in detail and its performance is analyzed. Experimental results on externally launched ion-acoustic waves are presented and it is demonstrated that accurate measurements of certain plasma parameters are possible
