about

The book presents an advanced tool for experimentalists using spectral lineshapes for diagnostics of laboratory or astrophysical plasmas, and for theorists helping the experimentalists in interpreting the experimental line profiles. It significantly expands the scope of parameters of plasmas and/or fields in it that can be measured. For some parameters, the book presents new, more advanced diagnostic methods than the methods covered in the previous books.

Readership: Graduate students and researchers interested in spectroscopic diagnostics of laboratory and astrophysical plasmas.
Key Features:

  • Practically its entire focus is on presenting solutions for the inverse problem in spectral lineshapes from plasmas
  • This monograph significantly expands the scope of parameters of plasmas and/or fields in it that can be measured (such as, e.g., effective charge of ions, parameters of low-frequency electrostatic turbulence in magnetized plasmas, parameters of Langmuir turbulence in magnetized plasmas, parameters of transverse laser-induced electromagnetic fields in plasmas)
  • For some parameters, this monograph presents new, more advanced diagnostic methods than the methods covered in the previous books
