This is an excellent reference book for any researcher in plasma physics. The book does go into a nice amount of mathematical detail about many diagnostics (e.g. deriving spectral profiles for relativistic Thompson scattering, etc.) and does cover some of the more advanced diagnostics like the MSE (Motional Stark Effect) diagnostic which has become very important in many fusion experiments. Overall, I believe this to be an indispensable reference for the subject. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521385830, Paperback)

Principles of Plasma Diagnostics is the most modern and comprehensive book in its field. It joins for the first time a body of knowledge previously scattered throughout scientific literature. The text is based on first-principles development of the required concepts, so it is accessible to students and researchers with little plasma physics background. Nevertheless, even seasoned plasma physicists should find insight in the lucid development of the fundamentals as they apply to diagnostics and also appreciate the work as a valuable reference. Although most of the examples of diagnostics in action are taken from fusion research, the work's focus on principles will make it useful to all plasma physicists, those interested in space and astrophysical plasmas as well as laboratory plasmas, and theoreticians as well as experimenters themselves.
