Bayesian consideration of the tomography problem
Soft X-ray tomography has become a standard diagnostic equipment to investigate plasma profiles. Due to limitations in viewing-access and detector numbers the reconstruction of the 2-dimensional emissivity profile constitutes a highly underdetermined inversion problem. We discuss the principle features of the tomography problem from the Bayesian point of view in various stages of sophistication. The approach is applied to real-world data obtained from the Wendelstein 7AS stellerator.
