Abstract

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.
