Abstract

Active control of beam trajectories using four sets of sweep plates is proposed for a heavy ion beam probe (HIBP) system on helical plasma, such as torsatron, stellarator, etc., in order to solve problems arising from the complicated beam trajectories in its nonaxisymmetrical magnetic field. By this method, a series of the probing beam trajectories giving a whole potential distribution can be managed to pass at a particular point (detector aperture) with the same angle. An equation is introduced as a guiding principle to simplify the optimization process of geometrical configuration of the HIBP system, which will be adjusted for different magnetic configurations by only changing the sweep plate voltages.
