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…
