HYBRID ABSORBER FOIL TECHNIQUE TO MEASURE THE ELECTRON TEMPERATURE OF 0.1-10 KEV PLASMAS
The soft x-ray absorber foil technique for electron temperature measurements is considered. The idea is introduced to compare the signals of a surface barrier diode and an x-ray sensitive photodiode rather than those of two identical detectors. The contrasting characteristics of the two detector types gives rise to an improvement of the temperature resolution by a factor 2 (at 0.4 keV) to 10 (at 10 keV).
