Synopsis:

The goal of the lecture is to obtain the overview of measurements of basic parameters of hot plasma and their components - density, temperature, electromagnetic fields, radiation and energy and temporal and spatial distribution. The students will acquaint with principles, methodic, demonstration, examples and application of basic diagnostics.

Requirements:

Knowledge of basic course of physics

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Measurement of current and voltage (F. Žáček, IPP).

2.Detection of X-ray emission. X-ray optics, filters, detectors, X-ray and XUV spectroscopy, different types of spectroscopes. (D. Klír, FEE CTU)

3.Atomic and radiate physics (elementary processes, radiate transport) spectroscopic methods of determination of plasma parameters. Models LTE, collision-radiate, coronal and non-stationary; conditions and criteria. (D. Klír, FEE CTU).

4.X-ray spectroscopy with temporal, space and spectral resolution, PIN detectors, polychromators, pinhole cameras, MCP detectors, streak cameras, bolometry, tomography. (D. Klír, FEE CTU).

5.Pulse laser as the active diagnostics of measurement of densities and their gradients, Interferometry, schlieren and shadow methods, Thomson scattering. (P. Kubeš, FEE CTU).

6.Practical measurements. (P. Kubeš, FEE CTU).

7.Langmuir probe measurements (M. Tichý, MPF CU).

8.Microwave diagnostics, analysis of spectra by FFT (F. Žáček, IPP).
