Effects of non-Maxwellian (super-Gaussian) electron velocity distribution on the spectrum of Thomson scattering
Phys. Plasmas 4 (7), July 1997，-0001，（）：
The dynamic form factor for Thomson scattering with a non-Maxwellian (super-Gaussian) electron velocity distribution is analytically and numerically studied for the first time. Both the ion and electron features of the spectra for a. 1 are found to be affected strongly. For the ion feature, the use of the usual theoretical spectra with the assumption of a Maxwellian distribution for fitting the measured Thomson scattering spectra may have resulted in some errors in calculating the plasma parameters in high-Z plasmas irradiated with high intensity light. However, it is impossible to use the ion feature of the measured spectra alone to deduce the form of the electron distribution. For the electron feature, the spectral shape (in particular the peak amplitude) changes sensitively with the distribution index. It would be possible to detect the super-Gaussian distribution by simultaneously measuring the ion and electron features of the spectra.
