Abstract

The broadening of the Raman resonance, due to the Doppler effect and particle collisions, is considered for the scattering of radiation in plasmas. The result is used to calculate the transport cross-section for the plasma in the solar interior and it is shown that the broadening effect can reduce the solar opacity. This result should therefore be taken into account in the Standard Solar Model, since a reduced opacity can change the predicted core temperature and hence the predicted flux of solar neutrinos.
