Abstract

The determination of the main excitation kinetics channels in the production of active species in a plasma is of main importance for the understanding and control of plasmas. In this contribution we will present the combination of two diagnostics methods, namely Laser (Collisional) Induced Fluorescence (LCIF) and Thomson scattering. The latter allows to measure locally the electron temperature and density meanwhile LCIF probes the excitation channels of selected atomic/molecular species with nanosecond time resolution after perturbation of the steady-state plasma with a nanosecond pulse tuned to an atomic transition.
