Abstract

The effects of a local external magnetic field on microwave scattering from a laser-generated plasma are investigated by modeling and experiment, leading to the prediction and observation of magnetically induced depolarization of scattered microwaves. The sample volume is localized by the small laser-generated plasma and depolarization is shown to depend on both the magnitude and direction of the magnetic field; this indicates the potential for standoff detection and measurement of vector magnetic fields in gases.
