Title: Upgrade of absolute extreme ultraviolet diagnostic on J-TEXT

Abstract

The absolute extreme ultraviolet (AXUV) diagnostic system is used for radiation observation on J-TEXT tokamak [J. Zhang, G. Zhuang, Z. J. Wang, Y. H. Ding, X. Q. Zhang, and Y. J. Tang, Rev. Sci. Instrum. 81, 073509 (2010)]. The upgrade of the AXUV system is aimed to improve the spatial resolution and provide a three-dimensional image on J-TEXT. The new system consists of 12 AXUV arrays (4 AXUV16ELG arrays, 8 AXUV20ELG arrays). The spatial resolution in the cross-section is 21 mm for the AXUV16ELG arrays and 17 mm for the AXUV20ELG arrays. The pre-amplifier is also upgraded for a higher signal to noise ratio. By upgrading the AXUV imaging system, a more accurate observation on the radiation information is obtained.

  • A precise absolute intensity calibration of a flat-field space-resolved extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectrometer working in wavelength range of 60-400 A is carried out using a new calibration technique based on radial profile measurement of the bremsstrahlung continuum in Large Helical Device. A peaked vertical profile of the EUV bremsstrahlung continuum has been successfully observed in high-density plasmas (n{sub e}{>=} 10{sup 14} cm{sup -3}) with hydrogen ice pellet injection. The absolute calibration can be done by comparing the EUV bremsstrahlung profile with the visible bremsstrahlung profile of which the absolute value has been already calibrated using a standard lamp. The line-integratedmore » profile of measured visible bremsstrahlung continuum is firstly converted into the local emissivity profile by considering a magnetic surface distortion due to the plasma pressure, and the local emissivity profile of EUV bremsstrahlung is secondly calculated by taking into account the electron temperature profile and free-free gaunt factor. The line-integrated profile of the EUV bremsstrahlung continuum is finally calculated from the local emissivity profile in order to compare with measured EUV bremsstrahlung profile. The absolute intensity calibration can be done by comparing measured and calculated EUV bremsstrahlung profiles. The calibration factor is thus obtained as a function of wavelength with excellent accuracy. It is also found in the profile analysis that the grating reflectivity of EUV emissions is constant along the direction perpendicular to the wavelength dispersion. Uncertainties on the calibration factor determined with the present method are discussed including charge-coupled device operation modes.« less
  • A magnetic pickup coil diagnostic set is used to measure the position of the plasma column in the Texas Experimental Tokamak Upgrade (TEXT-U) project. The output from this coil set is used in a digital feedback system to control the plasma position. To provide a fast time response for the feedback system, one complete coil set is located on the interior of the vacuum vessel. Another set with a slower time response is located on the outside of the vessel. To simplify and speed up data processing, the coils are constructed so that the [ital X] and [ital Y] coordinatesmore » of the plasma current centroid are each determined using the signals from only two separate coils. For each coordinate one coil is used to measure a tangential (relative to the coil surface) magnetic field component, while the second coil measures a normal field component. Due to physical constraints, the coils are not continuous around the vacuum vessel. The presence of gaps in the coils causes pickup of the external current flowing in the divertor coil windings during TEXT-U diverted discharges. This pickup has been successfully nulled out by adding a divertor current Rogowski coil to the [ital X] position coil circuit. The data indicate that these coils, along with the digital feedback system, are useful tools for flexible position control over a wide range of TEXT-U plasma parameters.« less
  • One of the major challenges facing the commercialization of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography remains simultaneously achieving resist sensitivity, line-edge roughness, and resolution requirement. Sensitivity is of particular concern owing to its direct impact on source power requirements. Most current EUV exposure tools have been calibrated against a resist standard with the actual calibration of the standard resist dating back to EUV exposures at Sandia National Laboratories in the mid 1990s. Here they report on an independent sensitivity calibration of two baseline resists from the SEMATECH Berkeley MET tool performed at the Advanced Light Source Calibrations and Standards beamline. The resultsmore » show the baseline resists to be approximately 1.9 times faster than previously thought based on calibration against the long standing resist standard.« less
  • The photoionization cross section of H I was measured at 19 wavelength points from 910 to 609 A with experimental uncertainties between 7 and 20%. An aerodynamic shock tube, equipped with explosively driven shutters, was used to produce fully dissociated hydrogen and neon gas mixtures for the photoabsorption measurements. A description of the new shock-tube facility and a discussion of the experimental techniques are presented. Since our results agree with well-established theory, the reliability of our apparatus and methods for making measurements of this kind has been demonstrated. The measurement is the first in a continuing program to measure themore » photoionization cross sections of H I, O I, C I, and N I. (AIP)« less
