Title: Initial results and designs of dual-filter and plenoptic imaging for high-temperature plasmas

Abstract

Mass injection has found new applications in magnetic fusion including edge-localized-mode control. Better understanding of injected-mass-plasma interactions requires spatially and temporally resolved diagnostics that can characterize the dynamics of the mass interactions with plasmas. Fast imaging can be used to characterize the ionization dynamics such as the propagation of the ionization front, which moves at the thermal sound or higher speed, and mixing of the neutral atoms with the ambient plasma. Multi-wavelength spectral imaging is promising since different parts of the plasma give different spectral signatures. Here in this paper we describe a dual-spectral imaging technique based on a monochromatic camera sensor and filters with two passing optical wavelengths. The method is shown to improve image contrast, and it compares favorably with alternatives such as color cameras and methods using a filter wheel. Further improvements through relative filter area ratios and plenoptic imaging are possible. Finally, the initial results from EAST and plenoptic imaging are also included.
