Paper Abstract

A Thomson scattering diagnostic for measuring the alpha particle velocity distribution is described. Calculations of scattering are made for a CIT type plasma using available CO2 laser and heterodyne technology. Tests of a long pulse CO2 laser, multichannel heterodyne detector, and an absorption cell for stray laser radiation are presented.
