Tokamak plasma diagnosis by surface physics techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

64 Scopus citations


The utilization of elementally-sensitive surface techniques as plasma diagnostics is discussed with emphasis on measuring impurity fluxes, charge states, and energy distributions in the plasma edge. A model of plasma flow to the probe is presented and applied to the interpretation of data. Limits on time and energy resolution, and sensitivity are given. The overlap of these techniques with conventional plasma diagnostics is described.
