A photodiode-based neutral particle bolometer for characterizing charge-exchanged fast-ion behavior

A photodiode-based neutral particle bolometer for characterizing charge-exchanged fast-ion behavior

July 2012 | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A neutral particle bolometer (NPB) has been designed and implemented on Tri Alpha Energy’s C-2 device in order to spatially and temporally resolve the charge-exchange losses of fast-ion populations originating from neutral beam injection into field-reversed configuration plasmas.

A reversed-field structure of the translated CTs and final merged FRC state have been directly verified by probing the internal magnetic field structure using a multi-channel magnetic probe array near the midplane of the C-2 confinement chamber.
