Abstract:

Details are given for an interferometer operating at 10.6 micrometers, capable of measuring electron densities in the 10 to the 14th power cu cm to 10 to 16th power cu cm range, constructed for use on the NRL SEEBIE Beam-Plasma Interaction Experiment. In its present form the instrument will provide time dependent, spatially integrated electron density profiles with a minimum detectable value of integral of n sub e ddl 1.06 X 10 to the 15th powersq cm.
