Whose line is it anyway? A self-training spectral line identification code for plasma physics experiments

November 2022 | M. Tobin | Journal of Applied Physics | Paper

The process of associating spectral peaks in emission radiation data with particular charge states of specific elements is a common task in
the field of plasma diagnostics in both laboratory and astrophysical settings.

MHD mode identification by higher order singular value decomposition of C-2W Mirnov probe data

April 2021 | M. Tobin | Review of Scientific Instruments | Paper

The C-2W device (also known as “Norman”) at TAE Technologies has proven successful at generating stable, long-lived field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasmas with record temperatures.
