Plasma fusion and high-speed digitizer: ch.3

Remember: 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.

Here are 2 Scientific Papers (IEEE Transactions On Nuclear Science, Vol. 58, No. 4, August 2011, and Publication of the UKAEA) that deepen the matter:

Real Time Operation of MAST Thomson Scattering Diagnostic

The Mega Ampere Spherical Tokamak (MAST) in the UK, which is one of the larger Tokomak sites and a precursor for the ITER project.  Agilent high-speed digitizers are used for the data acquisition in Thompson scattering  for electron temperature measurement.

Timing and data acquisition system for MAST high rate Thomson scattering

This paper describes the use of Agilent Acqiris high speed digitizers in the Thomson
scattering instrumentation.
