The multi-spectral imaging diagnostic

The Multi-Spectral Imaging system is a new diagnostic that captures simultaneous spectrally filtered images from a common line of sight while maintaining a large etendue and high throughput. Imaging several atomic line intensities simultaneously may enable numerous measurement techniques. By making a novel modification of a polychromator layout, the MSI sequentially filters and focuses images onto commercial CMOS cameras while exhibiting minimal vignetting and aberrations. A four-wavelength system was initially installed and tested on Alcator C-Mod and subsequently moved to TCV. The images are absolutely calibrated and spatially registered enabling 2D mappings of atomic line ratios and absolute line intensities. The spectral transmission of the optical system was calibrated using an integrating sphere of known radiance. The images are inverted by cross-referencing points on TCV with a computer-aided design (CAD) model. Published by AIP Publishing.
