Jet outflow and open field line measurements on the C-2U advanced beam-driven field-reversed configuration plasma experiment

August 2016 | D. Sheftman | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

Knowledge and control of the axial outflow of plasma particles and energy along open-magnetic-field lines are of crucial importance to the stability and longevity of the advanced beam-driven field- reversed configuration plasma. An overview of the diagnostic methods used to perform measurements on the open field line plasma on C-2U is presented, including passive Doppler impurity spectroscopy, microwave interferometry, and triple Langmuir probe measurements.
