    Several plasma diagnostics techniques measure the line integrals of quantities such as densities and optical, ultraviolet, and X-ray emission. Some approaches for reconstructing the local quantities from their line integrals, based on methods utilized in computerized tomography, electron microscopy, holographic interferometry, and radio astronomy, are derived and presented. Results for the special... View full abstract»

    Plasma electron excitation of the 6s2S1/2 - 6p2P resonance transitions for the singly charged barium ion is proposed as an optical diagnostic for plasmas of thermonuclear interest. Spatial information arises from the intersection of a barium ion beam and the viewing optics. Measurement of relative intensity during a scan of beam and/or optics provides information for electron density and temperatu... View full abstract»

    Neutral beam injection into Doublet III has been considered with regard to the calculation of non thermalizing particle orbits and the confinement of such orbits. Injected particle loss, based upon these orbits, toroidal gyro-radius effects, and plasma transparency, is calculated to be on the order of 5 percent for coinjection. Near-perpendicular injection at 80 keV has been chosen with the result... View full abstract»

    A multiple arc system using six separate arcs which coalesce to form a large volume of ionized gas is described. The conditions for the maintenance of a stable multiple arc system are analyzed and results using an analog to investigate the current distribution for different electrode configurations are given together with photographs showing the different discharge structures.

    The failure modes of a high-current 100-kA 0.6-C sparkgap were studied. The results of the study were used to design and build a high reliability, high-current sparkgap (130-kA 0.7-C). The structure of the sparkgap and the results of the testing are described. View full abstract»

    Spatial and temporal characteristics of the 10th and 11th harmonic lines generated in plasmas created by intense (1014 W · cm-2) nanosecond CO2 laser pulses have been studied. It is found that the spatial origin of these high harmonics is related to the laser intensity distribution in the focal region, and that there is considerable picosecond substructure in their temporal development.

  • Aspects of Nonlinear Heating by Lower Hybrid Waves

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1801 KB)

    Nonlinear instabilities driven by waves with frequencies comparable to the lower hybrid frequency are examined both analtyically and numerically using particle simulation techniques. Both the oscillating two-stream and ion-cyclotron instabilities are discussed. It is found that ion-cyclotron damping can be a more effective mechanism for driving instabilities in a hot tokamak plasma than electron L... View full abstract»

    An analysis of the MHD Couette flow on taking into account the Hall and the ion-slip effects has been carried out for fully developed flow. Exact solutions to the velocity components, magnetic field components, axial and transverse components of the skin-friction, temperature and the rate of heat transfer have been derived. The numerical values of the transverse induced pressure gradient, the skin... View full abstract»

    The thermal ionization equilibrium in plasmas is considered at pressures for which the electron gas is partially to considerably degenerate. An ionization equation is derived which takes into account that i) the electron energies are distributed according to Fermi statistics and ii) the (heavy) ions and atoms obey Boltzmann statistics which is valid up to pressures at which the wave functions of t...
