Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


RFX is a magnetically confined fusion experiment in operation since 1992 in Padova (Italy). Analysis of magnetic field is essential for the safe operation of the machine and the understanding of high temperature plasma dynamics. Both of these issues require an accurate electromagnetic diagnostic system. In this paper after a discussion on the problems related to magnetic measurements in fusion experiments, with particular reference to the RFX environment, the probes recently installed inside the vacuum vessel will be described.
