Design and Characterization of High Repetition Rate Lasers and Collection Optics for Thomson Scattering Diagnostics on C-2W

April 2018 | A. Ottaviano | HTPD2018 | Poster

A new Thomson scattering (TS) system is being constructed on C-2W for obtaining electron temperature and density profiles with high temporal and spatial resolution. Validating the performance of the TS’s custom designed system components is crucial to obtaining reliable Te and ne profiles of C-2W’s plasma.
