Alpha particle diagnostics using 140 GHz microwave scattering on JETFunded under: FP3-FUSION 11C
To evaluate the efficiency of alpha particle heating in the DT phase of JET, it is necessary to measure the energy distribution of the fast alpha particle population. The fast ion and alpha particle diagnostic at JET will use collective Thomson scattering of high power microwave radiation to determine the alpha particle velocity distribution between their birth energy (3.5 MeV) and about 0.5 MeV with a typical spatial resolution below 0.1 m and time resolution about 0.1 s. The diagnostic uses a high power long pulse 140 GHz gyrotron as the source of probing radiation and a heterodyne receiver system to measure the spectrum of scattered radiation.
