ABSTRACT
Fusion neutral beam systems have conventionally used gas cells of the beam isotope as neutralizers. In the design of negative ion beam systems for ITER, and likely also for future reactors, the large gas efflux arising from these cells can lead to many problems. We discuss the possibility of decreasing the gas load by using a lithium jet neutralizer, which would also afford higher neutralization efficiency.

    The effect of beam generated plasma in the channels of the ITER electrostatic residual ion dump (ERID) is investigated. The space charge due to the plasma and the separating positive and negative ion beams could cause the ERID to fail if the plasma density is sufficiently high. The gas density...

    An exploratory study of negative ion beam photo-neutralization for future fusion reactors is explained. A refolded Fabry-Perot cavity system is proposed, with which a 60% neutralisation efficiency could be reached with low electric power consumption. The system would make use of sophisticated...

    A technique is described whereby the ion dumps inside the TFTR Neutral Beam Test Stand were used to measure thermal profiles of the full-, half-, and third-energy ions. 136 thermocouples were installed on the full-energy ion dump, allowing full beam contours. Additional linear arrays across the...

    A high-brightness and low-divergence neutral beam is obtained for a Zeeman polarimetry of edge plasmas on JT-60U. The electron density and the pitch angle of the magnetic field line, thus the plasma current density distribution, can be measured by the Zeeman polarimetry using the lithium beam. A...

    A 60 kV neutral Li beam is injected into the edge plasma of JET to measure the electron density. The beam observation system has been improved by replacing a Czerny-Turner spectrometer with a high-resolution transmission-grating spectrometer and a fast back-illuminated frame-transfer camera.

    An alternative approach to a sputtering process was examined where a single incident beam of Xe ions was used to simultaneously sputter a carbon target and bombard a growing film. The hypothesis that by positioning a substrate at grazing angles to the central axis of the ion beam, the additional...
