Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the diagnostic analysis in magnetically confined fusion plasmas with attention drawn both to the methodology in common with that in astrophysics and to points of departure - such as species, transport, high density and the role of neutral hydrogen. Comment is also made on the state of high quality theoretical collision data from a fusion perspective and how it can support rigorous error analysis of better spectroscopic measurements
