Abstract
As a result of steady progress in high power FIR lasers and sensitive, low-noise detection systems, the equipment is now available to measure the ion temperature (Ti) of tokamak plasmas by Thomson scattering from thermal density fluctuations. Using a laser in the far-infrared wavelength range permits scattering angles as large as 90° which results in excellent spatial resolution of the measurement. Heterodyne receivers built around Schottky barrier diode mixers combine high sensitivity with large electrical bandwidth to cover the frequency spread of the scattered radiation. After a first demonstration of feasibility was reported by Woskoboinikow et al (1), recent improvements on our system made it possible for the first time to measure Ti in a single laser shot.
