Observation of steepening in electron plasma waves driven by stimulated Raman backscatteringDonald Umstadter Publications
Date of this Version7-20-1987
AbstractHarmonics of plasma waves excited by CO2-laser–induced stimulated Raman scattering have been observed by frequency- and wave-number-resolved ruby Thomson scattering. Measurements of their relative amplitudes agreed with predictions of nonlinear warm-plasma wave-steepening theory up to the maximum observed amplitude of the fundamental component, ñ1/n0=16%.
