Abstract

Several countries are now building large fusion experiments with the objective of reaching plasma conditions similar to those required for a fusion reactor. These need diagnosing. Comprehensive and reliable diagnostic systems will be needed to obtain the required plasma conditions and then to study the plasma behaviour. A number of questions arise: these effectively form the theme of this course and workshop. Which plasma parameters can be measured using well established techniques? Which plasma parameters will be difficult to measure and will require the development of new techniques? What are the special problems of diagnosing plasma in conditions approaching those needed in a fusion reactor? The course was held in Varenna, Italy, between 6th and 17th September 1982, at the International School of Plasma Physics; the present book represents the first of two projected volumes; the papers collected in it group themselves under the headings: radiation emission, radiation emission and scattering, neutral particles, and neutrons.
