Diagnostic techniques for neutral beam heated tokamak plasmas fall into three categories; 1) Magnetic diagnostics for measurements of gross stored energy, 2) Profile diagnostics for measurements of stored thermal and beam energy, impurity content and plasma rotation, and 3) Fast time resolution diagnostics to study MHD fluctuations and micro-turbulence. Diamagnetic and equilibrium poloidal field measurements of total stored energy lend themselves to rapid analysis, and immediate feedback to machine operations. Detailed profile measurements are required to substantiate the magnetic measurements, and to provide direct information on plasma confinement.
