A Photoiode-based Neutral Particle Bolometer for Characterizing Fast-ion Behavior

A Photoiode-based Neutral Particle Bolometer for Characterizing Fast-ion Behavior

May 2012 | R. Clary | HTPD | Poster

A neutral particle bolometer (NPB) has been designed and implemented on the TAE Technologies 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.
