Plasma fusion and high-speed digitizer: ch.2

This second chapter on plasma fusion and high-speed digitizer features a Scientific Paper published in the AIP Review of Scientific Instruments, 80, 103504, 2009

Development and testing of a fast Fourier transform high dynamic-range spectral diagnostics for millimeter wave characterization

This paper describes the use of a fast Fourier transform (FFT) based wide range millimeter wave diagnostics system for spectral characterization of scattered millimeter waves in plasmas.  It has been successfully brought into operation. The scattered millimeter waves are heterodyne downconverted and directly digitized using an Agilent Acqiris U1065A high-speed digitizer which was selected among 6 others devices.

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.
