Data Acquisition and Processing for Plasma Diagnostics

D. Makowski (Lodz Univ. of Techn., Poland)

Energy produced by nuclear fusion seems to be the most promising source of energy in the near future. Fusion is generated in tokamak devices that use magnetic fields to maintain and control the hot plasma. It important to monitor and control plasma parameters during tokamak operation. Data Acquisition and Processing systems are usually applied for physical parameters measurements. The measured and processed data provides useful information describing plasma conditions and its parameters. The paper will discuss various hardware architectures suitable to design complex, scalable data acquisition and processing systems for plasma diagnostics applications. Two examples of typical data acquisition and processing systems will be presented: the Basic Divertor Neutron Flux Monitor and imaging system.
