Polarisation Coherence Imaging of Electric and Magnetic Fields in Plasmas

Thorman, Alexander


Polarisation coherence imaging is a powerful spectroscopic diagnostic for high spatial resolution measurements of strong electric and/or magnetic fields inside high temperature fusion plasmas. The motional Stark effect (MSE) is the principal application for the technique, involving measurement of the Balmer-α polarised emission from high velocity neutral beam atoms subjected to a strong vxB electric field. The research in this thesis examines all aspects of...[Show more]
