ABSTRACT
Images with high temporal and spatial resolution of the resurrector tokamak plasma were obtained. The plasma cross section was focused onto a commercially available 128 pixel photodiode array (active area: 2.5×3.2 mm2). Specially designed data acquisition electronics allowed rapid readout for the observation of the spatial profile of visible emissions with 150 μs time resolution. The breakdown and subsequent evolution of the discharge was monitored to allow improvement of the plasma parameters.
