Temporally integrated ultraviolet collective Thomson scattering measurements were performed with frequency-quadrupled Nd:YAG laser radiation on an underdense long-scalelength aluminum plasma (nc ~1021 cm-3, Z≈7, Te≈Ti ⩾50 eV, L⩾100 μm). The plasma was preformed by an Nd:YAG fundamental beam (1.06 μm) with focusable intensities of 10 11 W/cm2. Color images of two-dimensional (2-D) spatially resolved (30 μm) electron density and electron temperature were obtained. These are the shortest wavelength Thomson scattering measurements on a plasma to date
