    We measured debris characteristics of a tin (Sn) plasma produced by a 10-ns infrared Nd:YAG laser. A maximum kinetic energy of 7 keV of tin ions was observed. Such suprathermal tin ions emitted from a solid planar target consisted of singly and doubly ionized tin ions. Both suprathermal ions and...

    A high-resolution x-ray spectrometer utilizing a thin quartz transmission crystal and covering the 6 keV-18 keV energy range has been developed and tested. The spectrometer consists of a cylindrically bent crystal in a vacuum housing. The crystal position and the range of Bragg angles that are...

    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...

    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 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,...
