Abstract

The Thomson scattering diagnostic has been used to measure the dust present in plasma discharges on FTU tokamak after disruption. The vaporization of the dust particles due to the high power of the laser used by the Thomson scattering diagnostic imply that only a rough estimate of the particle size could be derived from the elastic scattering of the laser light. A simple model for dust particle evaporation has been used to infer the size of the dust particle from the scattered light data. © 2008 American Institute of Physics.
