Description of the activity

A new gas injection system is under construction and will be installed in TJ-II for the next campaign. It will be used for GPI with a camera system that allows 3 simultaneous filtered frames to apply the He I ratio technique. The objective is to get 2D measurements of the edge plasma electron density ne and temperature Te with spatial resolution of 3 mm and temporal resolution down to 10 microseconds so as to study plasma turbulence. The first step will be the commissioning of the puffing system in TJ-II plasmas and take first images to see that the mounting is correct and optimise the Helium puffing levels into the plasma. The second step will be to obtain first images of ne and Te images and compare it with previous measurements and other diagnostics such as Reflectometry and Thomson Scattering [1]. The third step will be to find the best settings to study plasma turbulence [2].
