Title:

Feasibility Study of 300-1000 eV Electron Temperature Measurements of a Low-Density (n about = to the 14th power/cc) Transient (t about = 100 nsec) Plasma in the 'Triton' Experiment Using Beryllium Foils, L-Edge Ross Filters and Photoelectric Detectors.

Abstract:

Various techniques of low-energy x-ray measurements useful in the determination of electron temperatures are evaluated for application to the energetic 300 - 1000 eV low-density n about 10 to the 14th powercc transient t about 100 nsec plasma in the Triton electron beam-plasma interaction experiment. Diagnostic techniques considered include continuum measurements with broad-band beryllium-foil filters, narrow band-pass absorption-edge filters for x-ray energies below 1 keV and gold photoelectric detectors for energies below 400 eV.
