A new method of measuring the poloidal magnetic and radial electric fields in a tokamak using a laser-accelerated ion-beam trace probe.

Abstract

Both the poloidal magnetic field (Bp) and radial electric field (Er) are significant in magnetic confinement devices. In this paper, a new method was proposed to diagnose both Bp and Er at the same time, which was named Laser-accelerated Ion-beam Trace Probe (LITP). This method based on the laser-accelerated ion beam, which has three properties: large… (More)
