First fast-ion D-alpha (FIDA) measurements and simulations on C-2U

August 2016 | N. G. Bolte | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

The first measurements of fast-ion D-alpha (FIDA) radiation have been acquired on C-2U, Tri Alpha Energy’s advanced, beam-driven field-reversed configuration (FRC). These measurements are also forward modeled by FIDASIM. This is the first measurement and simulation of FIDA carried out on an FRC topology.
