Contract notice: Plasma heating system using a neutral beam for the compass tokamak
4m, seven-year contract for ITER's neutral beam remote handling system.
Then, with a well-known technology called the neutral beam injection (a device that converts a powerful accelerating beam of ions into neutral atoms), one could inject a beam of atoms at the outer edge of the plasma, imparting momentum and energy and confining it indefinitely.
There is a neutral beam injector which injects the particle beam from the accelerator to heat the plasma to the proper temperature.
The ITER Tokamak ultimately will rely on three external heating systems to bring the plasma up to full power: ion cyclotron heating, electron cyclotron heating and neutral beam heating.
Papers are in sections on neutral beam systems, fundamental processes, hydrogen and deuterium negative ion sources, applications, and extraction, acceleration, transport, and neutralization of ions.
The basic configuration contains a low-noise He-Ne laser, displaying long term stability and a confocal recording channel with a permanently integrated neutral beam splitter.
At Princeton University in 1986, an experiment using electric current heating and neutral beam injectors achieved a sustained temperature of 200,000,000 [degrees] C, twice as hot as needed.
design and build contract including design, construction, test & commissioning and Taking-Over by F4E of the Neutral Beam Power Supply Buildings (Buildings 34 and 37),
In the vacuum vessel, the fuel which is deuterium and tritium, will be heated with microwaves, electricity and neutral particle beams from neutral beam injector.
In the industrial outskirts of Padua, Italy, about 40 kilometres west of Venice, the long white buildings of the PRIMA Neutral Beam Test Facility are now ready to receive equipment, after a little over a year of construction activity.
The basic model contains a low-noise HeNe laser and a confocal recording channel with a permanently integrated neutral beam splitter.
