Description

Secondment to Joint European Torus (JET), located at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE): Working with the JET electron kinetics group

In 2011 Morten Stejner was on secondment at JET during C29 from January 16 to February 10. At JET he participated in work within the electron kinetics group to validate data from electron temperature diagnostics based on incoherent Thomson scattering measurements and electron cyclotron emission spectroscopy (the KE3, KE11, KK1 and KK3 diagnostics). Measurements with these diagnostics had previously shown discrepancies between the inferred electron temperatures, and the origin of these discrepancies was investigated based on both historical data and more recent data from C28 and C29 incorporating updated calibrations for both types of diagnostics. This work was continued from another secondment period in late 2011.
