Understanding the behaviour of the confined fast ions is important in both current and future fusion experiments. These ions play a key role in heating the plasma and will be crucial for achieving conditions for burning plasma in next-step fusion devices. Microwave-based Collective Thomson Scattering (CTS) is well suited for reactor conditions and offers such an opportunity by providing measurements of the confined fast-ion distribution function resolved in space, time and 1D velocity space. We…

Resolving the bulk ion region of millimeter-wave collective Thomson scattering spectra at ASDEX Upgrade.

The design, calibration, and operation of the fast receiver system are described and examples of measured bulk ion CTS spectra showing the effects of changing ion temperature, rotation velocity, and plasma composition are given.

Plasma rotation and ion temperature measurements by collective Thomson scattering at ASDEX Upgrade

We present the first deuterium ion temperature and rotation measurements by collective Thomson scattering at ASDEX Upgrade. The results are in general agreement with boron-based charge exchange

Consistency between real and synthetic fast-ion measurements at ASDEX Upgrade

Internally consistent characterization of the properties of the fast-ion distribution from multiple diagnostics is a prerequisite for obtaining a full understanding of fast-ion behavior in tokamak
