Development of multichord ion Doppler spectroscopy system for toroidal flow measurement of field-reversed configuration

December 2022 | K. Araoka | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

A double-chord ion Doppler spectroscopy (IDS) system was developed to measure the ion temperature and flow velocity of field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas in the FRC amplification via a translation-collisional merging (FAT-CM) device.
