Laser-aided measurements of plasma transport (invited) (abstract)

Published Web Location Commons 'BY' version 4.0 license

Laser induced fluorescence (LIF) diagnostic techniques1–3 allow investigation of diverse plasma phenomena. LIF techniques will be discussed in the context of a series of experiments carried out at UCI including: (1) phase space reconstructions of ion response to electron and ion beam generated modes,4,5 ion acceleration and anomalous transport in the near wake of plasma-obstacle systems, (2) optical tomographic techniques2 applied to ion acceleration in velocity space,6 and (3) optical tagging techniques used to quantitatively assess classical and turbulent models of cross-field particle diffusion.7 This work was supported by NSF Grants ♯PHY-8606081 and ♯ATM-8411189.
