Modeling analysts are using a methodology that applies queuing theory logistics laws and simulation to factory performance analysis. These methods are being applied at semiconductor back-end factories, where a major focus is on achieving capacity increases with minimal equipment additions. This paper describes this technical methodology and investigates an(More)
A dual-channel high-efficiency, high-throughput custom spectroscopic system has been designed and implemented at DIII-D to measure localized ion thermal fluctuations associated with drift wave turbulence. A large-area prism-coupled transmission grating and high-throughput collection optics are employed to observe C VI emission centered near λ=529 nm. The(More)
The availability of high-efficiency volume phase holographic (VPH) gratings and intensified CCD (ICCD) cameras have motivated a simplified, compact spectrometer for Thomson scattering detection. Measurements of T(e) < 100 eV are achieved by a 2971 l∕mm VPH grating and measurements T(e) > 100 eV by a 2072 l∕mm VPH grating. The spectrometer uses a fast-gated(More)
A new beam emission spectroscopy (BES) diagnostic is under development. Photon-noise limited measurements of neutral beam emissions are achieved using photoconductive photodiodes with a novel frequency-compensated broadband preamplifier. The new BES system includes a next-generation preamplifier and upgraded optical coupling system. Notable features of the(More)
Non-inductive startup experiments are being conducted on the ultralow-A Pegasus Toroidal Experiment using an array of localized high current density plasma guns for plasma formation and current drive. This DC helicity injection technique has yielded tokamak-like plasmas of Ip/Itf up to 2.3 (IN > 12), far exceeding that achieved by ohmic induction. The guns(More)
A beam emission spectroscopy (BES) system has been installed on the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) to study ion gyroscale fluctuations. The BES system measures D(α) emission from a deuterium neutral heating beam. The system includes two optical views centered at r/a≈0.45 and 0.85 and aligned to magnetic field pitch angles at the neutral beam.(More)
A passive ion temperature polychromator has been deployed on Pegasus to study power balance and non-thermal ion distributions that arise during point source helicity injection. Spectra are recorded from a 1 m F/8.6 Czerny-Turner polychromator whose output is recorded by an intensified high-speed camera. The use of high orders allows for a dispersion of 0.02(More)
By exploiting advances in high-energy pulsed lasers, volume phase holographic diffraction gratings, and image intensified CCD cameras, a new Thomson scattering system has been designed to operate from 532 - 592 nm on the Pegasus Toroidal Experiment. The system uses a frequency-doubled, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser operating with an energy of 2 J at 532 nm and a(More)
