Agilent digitizers and plasma fusion: ch.1

Plasma fusion reactors will use Tokamak’s as a key technology for future power generation systems.  Tokamak fusion experiments look to stabilize a plasma so that fusion reactions can occur (similar to those on the Sun) and Fusion reactors can be built.  These Fusion reactors promise to provide “Clean” nuclear energy, and many projects are occurring today. Often linked to the ITER project ( that links Europe, China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the US in a global investment for Fusion research.This first chapter concerning plasma fusion features a scientific paper  in AIP Review of Scientific Instruments, 82, 103501, 2011 written by B. Kurzan and H. D. Murmann from the Max-Planck Institute für Plasmaphysik. 

Edge and core Thomson scattering systems and their calibration on the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak

Thompson scattering is used for the measurement of radial profiles of electron density and temperature at the plasma edge.  At the Max-Planck Institute für Plasmaphysik, these measurements are made using a number of Agilent high-speed digitizers
