Significantly more information is available from synchrotron emission from a plasma when the plasma is purposefully disturbed. An inverse problem to deduce properties of the disturbance given time-dependent radiation data, is proposed. The fast time response of radiation detectors is fully exploited by this approach. A special case of interest, perpendicular observation of a steady-state plasma, lends itself to an analytic inversion.
