Stellarator Monitored By Cygnets

The IPP requires specific cameras to monitor plasma that can be found within the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator. These cameras need to be able to fit into the tight spaces around the device as well as operate reliably when close to the large magnetic field in the necessary confinement. This application note introduces the Raptor Photonics Cygnet cameras that were able to meet these requirements with full testing up to 1.8 Tesla. Download the full paper for more information on these cameras as, and image examples of monitoring the stellarator.
