Measurements of the Ion Temperature in Plasmas from Neutron Radiation

  • S. P. Bogdanov

Methods employing the neutron radiation generated in nuclear reactions in the plasma are of great importance for the diagnosis of the ion component of a hot dd or dt plasma. These methods permit a rather accurate determination of the energy state of the ion component, eliminate the possibilities for certain errors, and are characterized by the fact that the recording circuits of the apparatus are situated outside the vacuum chamber.
