Abstract:

The report discusses the following specific methods of plasma diagnostics by lasers with reference to measuring electron concentration with helium-neon lasers Methods based on the Faraday effect - here gas lasers are mainly used because of the possibility of generating in the distant infrared measuring the electron concentration or magnetic induction, and The interferometric methods - here gas lasers are used because of the very good light consistency measuring the electron concentrations.
