6 May 1985 LSM-based X-Ray Diagnostics For Magnetic Fusion Energy Applications
Author Affiliations +
The use of layered synthetic microstructures (LSMs) as components of a radiation-hardened x-ray diagnostic designed to observe plasma instabilities in magnetic fusion energy (MFE) devices is discussed. Off-axis paraboloidal LSM optics are analytically evaluated as a means of mitigating the neutron- and gamma-induced detector noise and damage associated with deuterium-tritium operation that afflict direct line-of-sight instruments. Neutron-induced LSM damage is experimentally observed at a 14 MeV neutron fluence of 3.3 x 1014 n/cm2.
