Develops and tests a technique for measuring ion transport using laser-induced fluorescence in an argon plasma. Advantage of using only one broadband beam for the technique; Reliance of the technique upon a reduction of detected intensity due to a laser ion tagging process; Measurement of the ion distribution function using the laser system in single-mode operation.
