A concept for the nonperturbative measurement of electric fields in a plasma is described. The concept is based on laser-induced fluorescence from Stark-mixed states. This work reviews the electric field measurement concept, the choices of an active medium, and the laser and detector characteristics. A proof-of-principle experiment was set up and executed. The experimental results which demonstrate the feasibility of this technique for source region electro-magnetic pulse measurements are presented.
