Design of a Custom Insertable Probe Platform for Measurements of C-2W Inner Divertor Plasma Parameters

April 2018 | A. DuBois | HTPD2018 | Poster

A custom motor controlled probe system has been designed to make spatially resolved measurements of temperature, density, flow, and plasma potential in the C-2W inner divertors. Measurements in the inner divertors, which have a radius of 1.7 m and are located on either end of the confinement vessel, are critical in order to gauge exactly how local settings affect the plasma conditions, confinement, and stability in the FRC core.
