Abstract

We describe and demonstrate a two-volume collective scattering system for localized measurements of plasma turbulence. The finite crossfield correlation length of plasma turbulence combined with spatial variations in the magnetic field direction are used to obtain spatially localized turbulence measurements at the Wendelstein 7-AS fusion experiment. By comparing with localized measurements obtained using the single wide beam technique [True et al. Rev. Sci. Instrum. 63, 3716 (1992)] we provide a proof-of-principle demonstration of the two-beam method. An optimized configuration with large toroidal separation of the measurement volumes is predicted to be capable of providing spatial resolution better than 5 cm.
