    Sammanfattning : Measurements of the neutron emission, resulting from nuclear fusion reactions between the hydrogen isotopes deuterium and tritium, can provide a wealth of information on the confinement properties of fusion plasmas and how these are affected by Magneto-Hydro-Dynamic (MHD) instabilities.This thesis describes work aimed to develop neutron measurement techniques for nuclear fusion plasma experiments, specifically regarding the performance and design of collimated neutron flux monitors (neutron cameras) for the Mega Ampere Spherical Tokamak, MAST, and for MAST Upgrade.

  4. 4. Neutron emission spectroscopy of fusion plasmas with a NE213 liquid scintillator at JET

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Uppsala University

    Författare :Federico Binda; Göran Ericsson; Chernikova Dina; [2015]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NE213; neutron spectroscopy; liquid scintillator; nuclear; fusion; plasma;

    Sammanfattning : Neutron diagnostics will play a fundamental role in future fusion plasma machines,where the harsh environment will make the use of many other type of diagnos-tics practically impossible. Complex techniques to measure the neutron spectrumemitted from tokamk plasmas have been developed over the years, producing stateof the art neutron spectrometers. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Liquid scintillators as neutron diagnostic tools for fusion plasmas System characterization and data analysis

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Federico Binda; Göran Ericsson; Michael Loughlin; [2018]

    Sammanfattning : The neutrons produced in fusion devices carry information about various properties of the ions that are reacting in the machine. Measurements of the neutron flux and energy distribution can therefore be used to study the behaviour of the plasma ions under different experimental conditions. LÄS MER
