Yannick de Jong - Internship at General Atomics
Between May and August 2022 as part of my masters programme ‘The Science and Technology of Nuclear Fusion’ at Eindhoven University of Technology I conducted an external internship at General Atomics in San Diego, California. General Atomics operates one of the most advanced currently running Tokamak based experiments. Here I worked on the implementation of the doppler shifted spectroscopy diagnostic of the neutral beam system. Using Doppler shifted light obtained from the beam lines we were able to identify the species of particles that were generated by the running ion sources.
