Abstract

A diagnostic method for the electron plasma density and temperature based on the exploitation of wideband THz pulses is presented. The model accompanying the diagnostic method is described, and it is shown useful to characterize the plasma density and temperature profile along a symmetry axis. This diagnostic is particularly interesting for plasma-acceleration schemes or laser-produced plasma channels.
