Kemper Hall, Room 1209

 

 

The magnetic fusion plasma diagnostics laboratory was established to provide novel diagnostics instrumentation for next generation magnetic fusion plasma devices. Recent developments have ranged from millimeter-wave ECE Imaging (ECEI) systems for electron temperature profile and fluctuation visualization to a multichannel ECE radiometer. Three large optical tables and computerized microwave/millimeter-wave test equipment are available for plasma diagnostics research (see Fig. 1), as well as a large aperture mechanical light chopper and quasi-optical hot load which will be employed in characterizating the NSTX poloidal scattering system. The laboratory also houses a large soldering and electronics assembly area (see Fig. 1) with which UC Davis has employed in the development of plasma diagnostic instrumentation previous ECEI, imaging reflectometry, FIReTIP and high-k scattering systems. The proposed poloidal scattering system for NSTX will be fabricated and characterized in this laboratory, as well as new FIReTIP output phase comparator electronics, ECEI system for HL-2A, and MIR for DIII-D and KSTAR.
