The following paper was not refereed but is highly cited (Teller etc) and now a standard Tokamak reference.
Measurement of Plasma Parameters in the Tokamak T3-A by Thomson Scattering M.J. Forrest, N.J. Peacock, D.C. Robinson, V.V. Sannikov and P.D. Wilcock. U.K.A.E.A. Research Group Report CLM-R107. Culham Laboratory .1970. H.M. Stationery Office.

NOTE. I was listed as an author on all JET papers where the authorship was indicated by 'The JET Team' in the period 1984 to 1990. I have only included JET papers where my data or significant input was used. I have probably missed several 'Proceedings' that have subsequently been refereed and published in Journals.
