Title: Plasma and radiation detection via fiber interferometry

Abstract

Photonic Doppler velocimetry tracks motion during high-speed, single-event experiments using telecommunication fiber components. The same technology can be applied in situations where there is no actual motion, but rather a change in the optical path length. Migration of plasma into vacuum alters the refractive index near a fiber probe, while intense radiation modifies the refractive index of the fiber itself. Lastly, these changes can diagnose extreme environments in a flexible, time-resolved manner.

FIG. 1 FIG. 1: Top and side view of a cylindrical load. Plasma detection measurements send light through slots in the anode to probe a 20 mm long, 0.5 mm diameter path between the anode and cathode. The unidirectional configuration (shown above) passes light from a collimator to a receiver (a→b); themore » bidirectional configuration uses a collimator with a retroreflector (a→b→a). Radiation detection measurement use a closed probe with no free space path (c).« less
