Abstract:

The far infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum has, until very recently, been the least accessible to experimentalists in the field of plasma diagnostics. Within the last decade, the availability of fast, sensitive detectors, known calibration sources, and rapid advancement in the field of fusion plasma research, have made the far infrared region quite viable and attractive in diagnostics. By far the most versatile and useful instrument in this area is the vacuum grating spectrometer. Thus a far-infrared spectroscopic system, the heart of which is a vacuum grating spectrometer, was built for plasma spectroscopy studies on the Texas Tokamak. The work described here specifies the system and defines some of the more important operating characteristics of the spectrometer. Author
