The JET outboard divertor targets are the in-vessel components which receive the largest heat flux density. Surface delamination, radial cracks, and tie rod failures have been observed in the outboard tungsten-coated CFC tiles, while bulk tungsten special lamellas were intentionally melted in dedicated experiments. These different types of damag…

JET is an experimental fusion reactor consisting of magnetically confined, high temperature plasma insidea large ultra-high vacuum chamber. The inside of the chamber is protected from the hot plasma withtiles made from beryllium, tungsten, carbon composites and other materials bolted to the vessel wall.The study was carried out in response to a JET…

992A high resolution spectrometer has been used to measure simultaneously plasma impurity ion temperatures and rotational velocities, with submillisecond temporal resolution. The dual requirements of detailed spectral detection and fast time response are satisfied by having two detection systems viewing the same dispersed spectrum. The first is a m…

The Mega Amp Spherical Torus ( MAST ) diagnostic needs are strongly influenced by physics goals that often require diagnostic integration and cross-mapping, especially in fine-scale investigations, such as transport barriers. Conversely, the unrivalled viewing access to the edge, scrape-off layer ( SOL ) and divertor regions, provided by the MAST o…

A curved crystal spectrometer in Johann configuration has been implemented on MAST to obtain values for electron temperature, ion temperature and toroidal velocity. The spectrometer is used to examine medium Z impurities in the soft x-ray region by utilising a Silicon ( 111 ) crystal, bent using a 4 pin bending jig, and a CCD detector sD t =8 ms d …

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…

Fast charge-coupled device (CCD) detector arrays placed at the output of visible spectrometers are used for multichord Doppler shift analyses on the COMPASS-D and START tokamaks. Unequal magnification in the horizontal and vertical axes allows for optimal matching of throughput and spectral resolution at the CCD detector. This involves cylindrical …

The superior etendu available from a Fabry-Perot spectrometer is also accessible when used in reflective mode in producing a narrow bandwidth rejection, or “notch,” filter. We consider the instrumental defects and the practical effects involved in realizing a useful device. A simple figure of merit is obtained which allows the Fabry-Perot chara…
