Characterization of Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Fusion Plasma Device
Keywords:Confinement, Nuclear Fusion, Plasma Devices, Electrostatic, X-Ray
Inetial electrostatic confinment fusion (IECF) device constructed at the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority (EAEA-IEC), is introduced the characterization of the IEC plasma device. The x-ray and visible light emissions in IEC plasma device were investigated by employing time -resolved detector and measure of the total amount of visible light using lux meter.
