Measurement of the local values of the ion temperature in a Tokamak using charge exchange of plasma ions with a jet of hydrogen atoms
Afrosimov V.V. , Petrov M.P., Sadovnikov V.A.
We describe a method for measuring local plasma-ion energy distribution, based on injection of a stream of hydrogen atoms into the plasma and using this stream as an artificial target for resonant charge exchange of the ions. The first results of the use of this method with the Tokamak-6 installation are presented.
