Abstract

Electron density (n e ) and electron temperature (T e ) measurements were performed via the plasma assembly for nonlinear turbulence analysis (PANTA) using the laser Thomson scattering technique. The second harmonic of Nd:YAG laser (λ = 532 nm) and an intensified charge-coupled device were used as a light source and a detector, respectively. Plasmas in PANTA were generated with Ar gas in a pressure range of 1-5mTorr. The range of the applied magnetic field was 600-1500 G. At the center of the plasma, ne and T e ranged (4-20) × 10 18 m -3 and 0.8-3 eV, respectively. Further, n e monotonically increased and T e monotonically decreased with the increasing gas pressure and magnetic field.
