Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF USING RUTHERFORD SCATTERING TO MEASURE ION DYNAMICS IN A MAGNETICALLY CONFINED PLASMA. THE SCATTERING PROCESS TO BE STUDIED WOULD UTILIZE A NEUTRAL HELIUM BEAM TO SCATTER OFF THE MAJORITY IONS IN THE PLASMA. THE SCATTERED BEAM DISTRIBUTION PROVIDES MEASUREMENT OF THE EQUILIBRIUM ION DENSITY, TEMPERATURE AND FLOW VELOCITY, AND FLUCTUATIONS OF THE ABOVE THREE QUALITIES. THE DIAGNOSTIC NEUTRAL BEAM INJECTOR TO BE STUDIED WOULD BE BASED ON PROVEN DESIGNS UTILIZED AT THE INSTITUTE FOR NUCLEAR PHYSICS IN NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIA. DESIGNS FOR A MULTI-CHANNEL NEUTRAL PARTICLE ANALYZER TO DETECT THE SCATTERED BEAM WILL ALSO BE STUDIED.
