Snapshot-imaging motional Stark effect polarimetry

Howard, John


Measurement of the motional Stark effect (MSE) for Balmer alpha light emitted from heating or diagnostic neutral beams is a standard technique for estimating plasma toroidal current density in tokamaks. Most techniques typically rely on a determination of the polarization angle or relative intensities of the multiplet components which are spectrally resolved using either an array of interference filters or a high-throughput grating instrument. Neither of these approaches is amenable to...[Show more]
