Paper Abstract

The design and operation of pulsed high-power narrow-line FIR oscillator-amplifier configurations in the 0.2 - 0.6 mm region for Thomson scattering is described. Narrow-line power outputs in the neighborhood of 200 kW at 496 μm have been obtained. Proposed scattering experiments on the UCLA tokamaks are also discussed. Additional efforts are directed toward the development of high-power sources in the 0.75 mm to 2.0 mm region for use in nonlinear plasma instability studies.
