The collection optics designs are described for the Thomson scattering diagnostic of the Korea superconducting tokamak advanced research (KSTAR) device. The optical systems collecting the light emission induced through the interaction between the plasma electrons and a laser beam are key components for the Thomson scattering system. A duo-lens system was examined, and the final optical designs were derived for Thomson scattering diagnostic of KSTAR.

    Conditioning electron beams using Thomson scattering is analyzed. The conditioning provides a quadratic correlation between the electron energy deviation and the betatron amplitude of the electrons, which results in enhanced gain in free-electron lasers. Quantum effects imply conditioning must...

    With a 263.3 nm probe laser beam, the Thomson scattering (TS) spectra are measured at the distance from the surface of gold disc targets as close as 50 μm. All of the TS spectra become narrower with time, which indicates the overall drop of plasma temperature as the high-Z plasmas blow off....
