Research output: Paper

Abstract

An imaging heavy ion beam probe has been designed and will be installed in the AUG tokamak. Modelling of the beam trajectories has been carried out with a full orbit following code which can handle 3D magnetic and electric fields, while the attenuation of the beam is calculated taking into account electron impact ionization and charge exchange reactions. Based on these simulations, the injection and detection geometries have been optimized while respecting the spatial restrictions, and the in- and out- vessel components have been designed accordingly. Laboratory experiments are currently ongoing to characterize the beam and the scintillator response to Cs irradiation, while the manufacturing of all components of the diagnostic is being finalized. The i-HIBP at AUG is foreseen to go in operation by the end of 2019.
