Paper Abstract

A laser based diagnostic technique has been developed to probe a thermal plasma for kinetic temperature and velocity measurements. The system employs a scanning tandem Fabry-Perot interferometer to measure the Doppler broadening and Doppler shift of Rayleigh scattered laser light. Practical problems of implementing the method are described.
