As part of the UKAEA Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production (STEP) fusion power station programme, a novel breeding blanket design was assessed. A conceptual design of STEP, which will be an innovative plan for a commercially-viable fusion power station, will be completed by 2024. The final aim of the current assessment is to find a conceptual des…


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 …


A multianode photomultiplier (8X8 anodes of 2.5X2.5 mm2) is used to detect a collection of spectra in a high dispersion echelle spectrometer. A cylindrical lens is placed at the output slit to increase the dispersion at the photomultiplier. The cross talk between adjacent spectra is non-negligible (although
