A bremsstrahlung diagnostic has been deployed on the Mega Ampere Spherical Tokamak ( MAST ) , with matrix viewing of the full plasma cross section in a narrow region of the continuum free of spectral lines. An uncooled CCD detector is used to provide 100 Hz 128 3 128 matrix viewing of the plasma emissivity which is spectrally selected using an inte…

Spectral imaging diagnostics that view the full plasma cross section are used on MAST with sensor resolutions and frame rates of up to 256 x 512 chords and 130 Hz, respectively. The incident and solid angles of filter illumination are fully controllable. Image splitting and spectral selection with separate filters are performed in the telecentric r…

Gyrokinetic microstability analyses, with and without electromagnetic effects, are presented for a spherical tokamak plasma equilibrium closely resembling that from a high confinement mode ( H mode ) discharge in the mega-ampere spherical tokamak ( MAST ) [ A. Sykes et al. , Nucl. Fusion 41 , 1423 ( 2001 )] . Electrostatic ion temperature gradient …

Quantitative measurements of the line and continua emissivities and the analyses of spectral line profiles are essential steps in the interpretation of the x-ray emission from high-temperature fusion plasmas. One method of placing the emissivities on an absolute basis is to use an absolutely calibrated spectrometer to record the data. The overall s…
