EFFECT OF THE INTERACTION LENGTH ON SCATTERING FROM COLLECTIVE PLASMA FLUCTUATIONS
The essential identity of scattering, phase scintillation, and holography is demonstrated, the underlying physical principle common to all being stated in sufficient generality by the Fresnel diffraction description of far forward scattering. The latter is shown to lend itself to a Fourier transform and numerical iteration analysis analogous to the reconstruction of an image from a hologram, leading to a determination of the density n-e (kappa,OMEGA) with a wavenumber resolution limited only by a number and spacing of the detectors in the observation plane.
