Linear mode conversion by magnetic fluctuations in inhomogeneous magnetized plasmas
The possibility is demonstrated of measuring magnetic fluctuations in inhomogeneous hot plasma by cross polarisation scattering (or linear mode conversion) of a pump wave. Application to fusion plasma, by magnetic probing in the core of a Tokamak, is considered using a combination of polarisation reflectometry and scattering techniques.
