ABSTRACT
A new spatially resolving x-ray crystal spectrometer capable of measuring continuous spatial profiles of high resolution spectra (λ/dλ>6000) of He-like and H-like Ar Kα lines with good spatial (∼1 cm) and temporal (∼10 ms) resolutions has been installed on the Alcator C-Mod tokamak. Two spherically bent crystals image the spectra onto four two-dimensional Pilatus II pixel detectors. Tomographic inversion enables inference of local line emissivity, ion temperature (Ti), and toroidal plasma rotation velocity (v[lowercase_phi_synonym]) from the line Doppler widths and shifts. The data analysis techniques, Ti and v[lowercase_phi_synonym] profiles, analysis of fusion-neutron background, and predictions of performance on other tokamaks, including ITER, will be presented.
