The transient internal probe (TIP) diagnostic is designed to permit internal magnetic field measurements in hot, high density plasmas. A small probe is fired through the plasma at high velocities and magnetic field measurements are accomplished using Faraday rotation within the Verdet glass probe. Magnetic field resolution of ±40 G and spatial resolution of 5 mm have been achieved. System frequency response is 10 MHz. Ablative effects are avoided by minimizing both the probe size and the time the probe spends in the plasma. A two‐stage light‐gas gun is used to accelerate the probe (held by a sabot) to 2.2 km/s. The sabot is removed using gas dynamic forces and a gas interface system prevents the helium muzzle gas from entering the plasma chamber. Work is underway to integrate the TIP diagnostic with laboratory plasma experiments. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
