Abstract
A new method is used to diagnose plasma density space-profiles that involves phase conjugate reflection of four-wave mixing. Theoretical calculations for plasma parameters in the HT-6M tokamak show that two pump-wave beams (HCN laser), with a power of 1 W together with a signal beam (D2O or CH3F laser) of 0.1 W, can create a reflection of 0.1 to 0.43 mW with a phase conjugate to the signal where the cross section of all external beams is 1 cm2. This means that the reflective ratio of four-wave mixing is two orders larger than the ratio of laser superheating scatter. The lower power laser, therefore, can be used to diagnose plasmas.
