The efficient confinement of fast ions is crucial to the development of a fusion power plant. Sawtooth crashes are a manifestation of an internal kink instability, which can severely degrade this confinement. The effect of these on a fast ion population can be investigated using fast-ion deuterium-alpha (FIDA) spectroscopy, where charge exchange re…

Velocity-space tomography provides a way of diagnosing fast ions in a fusion plasma by combining measurements from multiple instruments. We use a toroidally viewing and a vertically viewing fast-ion D-alpha (FIDA) diagnostic installed on the spherical tokamak MAST (before the upgrade) to perform velocity-space tomography of the fast-ion distributio…
