Recent applications of heavy-ion beam probes on such devices as the TEXT tokamak have shown the importance of increasing the capabilities of both the beam injection and detection systems. To this end we have investigated a new solid-state ion detector that will substantially improve spatial resolution. The application of the diagnostic technique on substantially larger devices will also require new electrostatic energy analyzer geometries, which are also under investigation.
