Fusion proton diagnostic for the C-2 field reversed configuration

Fusion proton diagnostic for the C-2 field reversed configuration

August 2014 | R. Magee | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

Measurements of the flux of fusion products from high temperature plasmas provide valuable insights into the ion energy distribution, as the fusion reaction rate is a very sensitive function of ion energy.
