    Zonal flows are of keen interest in efforts to understand transport in magnetically confined plasma. Of the well-developed diagnostics, the heavy ion beam probe, HIBP, is most suited to measure the radial electric field, E[sub r], associated with the flows in present medium to large devices....

    The temporal and spatial characteristics of the neon ion beam emissions from a low energy plasma focus device have been studied by employing a multiple Faraday cup assembly and the CR-39 track detectors at different angular and axial positions. In addition, the operating gas pressures were also...

    The physics of a shifting spheromak plasma inside a passive stabilization coil is examined. Criteria for the design of these coils are derived for various spheromak current distributions. For realistic coils and force-free plasmas a critical field index is derived, above which the coils are...

    A low-power source of plasma employing ECRH microwave breakdown in a reentrant cavity is described. The cavity has the following features: its dimensions can be made much smaller than its resonant wavelength, cavity Q values of several hundred are not difficult to achieve, and the vacuum rf...

    The fuel density (given by n[sub d]+n[sub t] and n[sub d]/n[sub t]) is one of the important parameters to determine and control in burning DT plasmas. Here, we propose that n[sub d] and n[sub t] be deduced from data on the dd and dt neutron energy distributions to be recorded with a neutron...

    A unique, fully three-dimensional-movable, 10-m-long, remotely controllable probe drive, internal to a high vacuum system, is described. Details of its design and constructional considerations take into account the hostile environment of a magnetized plasma (p = 8 × 10[sup -8] Torr, T = 250...

    A three-frame Mach-Zehnder interferometer (TFMZI) was developed for taking three pictures of the imploding plasma produced by one shot of fast pulsed discharge. TFMZI consists of a YAG laser, a beam splitter, and a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. By passing through the beam splitter the laser beam...

    An impurity pellet injector with three differential pumping systems has been developed to study the particle/impurity transport in combination with bremsstrahlung profile measurement in the Large Helical Device (LHD) plasma. For this purpose three different shaped pellets are tested; sphere,...

    The complex measurements with spectral, temporal, and spatial resolution are very important in studies of properties of radiation from hot dense plasmas (T[sub e] up to 1.5 keV, N[sub e] up to 10[sup 22] cm[sup -3]) generated by a pulse-powered Z-pinch machine with I[sub max]∼0.9-1.0 MA and...
