Title: Magnetic Field Measurement System

Abstract

A magnetic field measurement system was designed, built and installed at MAX Lab, Sweden for the purpose of characterizing the magnetic field produced by Insertion Devices (see Figure 1). The measurement system consists of a large granite beam roughly 2 feet square and 14 feet long that has been polished beyond laboratory grade for flatness and straightness. The granite precision coupled with the design of the carriage yielded minimum position deviations as measured at the probe tip. The Hall probe data collection and compensation technique allows exceptional resolution and range while taking data on the fly to programmable sample spacing. Additional flip coil provides field integral data.

  • In radiation therapy, excessive radiation occurs because the actual delivered dose to the tumor is unknown. To overcome this problem, we need a system in which the delivered dose is measured inside the body, and the dose data are transmitted from the inside to the outside of the body. In this study, a wireless communication system, using magnetic fields was studied, and an internal circuit for obtaining radiation dose data from an x-ray detector was examined. As a result, a communication distance of 200 mm was obtained. An internal circuit was developed, and a signal transmission experiment was performed usingmore » the wireless communication system. As a result, the radiation dose data from an x-ray detector was transmitted over a communication distance of 200 mm, and the delivered dose was determined from the received signal.« less
  • A hydrogen beam probing system developed for the REPUTE-1 reversed field pinch device is described. With this system, the plasma ion line density, the central ion temperature, and the magnetic field profile can be measured. Before being applied to the REPUTE-1 device, the probing system was tested on the TORIUT-5 tokamak and TORIUT-6 ultralow-q (ULQ) devices. The experimental results show the availability of the system. The measured line density agrees well with that measured by the microwave interferometry. The measurable density ranges from 10/sup 19/ m/sup -3/ to 3 x 10/sup 20/ m/sup -3/. A new method of magnetic fieldmore » measurement which is effective and important for RFP plasmas is proposed. The resolution and the accuracy of this measurement have been confirmed by experiments on the TORIUT-5 device. Experimental results agree well with computation.« less
  • A diagnostic system using a helium beam for local poloidal magnetic field measurements (Zeeman polarimeter system) has been constructed. The Zeeman spectrum of the helium 3{sup 1}{ital P}-2{sup 1}{ital S} line was observed in JT-60. The intensity and energy of the neutral helium beam were up to 0.6 A and 200 keV, respectively. Resolution of the Zeeman polarimeter was 0.01 nm which was realized by using a Littrow-type spectrometer. Photon counting efficiency was 0.065. Moreover, an {ital in} {ital situ} wavelength calibration could be done, using an Ar laser, within an error of 0.001 nm.
