Description: A Thomson-scattering system using a 6-joule Q-switched ruby laser and an eight-channel polychromator was constructed and employed to measure electron temperatures and densities at the center of the 2XII mirror confinement experiment. This report discusses experimental considerations used to guide design, construction, alignment, and operation of the Thomson-scattering system. (auth)
