More from the Fusion Power Associates meeting in Washington, D.C., concluding today:
A self portrait of fusion physicist Glen Wurden (from Los Alamos) taken
in infrared wavelengths (3-5 microns), using a new state-of-the art
infrared camera (FLIR Systems SC8303HD).
This camera was tested on Alcator C-Mod in Sept 2012, and will be used
as part of the American/German collaboration on the new W7-X
stellarator under construction in Germany, as a diagnostic to view the
protective armor tiles on the vacuum vessel. The armor
tiles get heated due to plasma-wall interactions.
