Abstract:

A method for the determination of the spatial electron density distribution in plasmas subjected to external magnetic fields is presented. The method involves the measurement of the Faraday rotation angle as a function of the external magnetic field strength. Results of calculations of normalized Faraday rotation angle versus normalized electron cyclotron frequency for various assumed electron density distributions are given. Author
