Filling a gap in the literature, this introduction to the topic covers the physics of the standard microwave diagnostics established on modern fusion experiments, and the necessary technological background from the field of microwave engineering. Written by well-known mm-wave diagnosticians in the field of fusion physics, the textbook includes such major diagnostic techniques as electron cyclotron emission, interferometry, reflectometry, polarimetry, and scattering.

Author Biography

Hans J. Hartfu? was with the Max-Planck-Institut f?r Plasmaphysik since 1982 working in the field of plasma diagnostics of hot fusion relevant plasmas. He was head of the diagnostics development divison of the Wendelstein 7X Stellarator experiment being build in Greifswald, Germany. As a professor he was teaching Plasma Diagnostics and in particular Microwave Diagnostics for many years at the University of Greifwald He is author/co-author of about 300 papers. He is now retired.

Thomas Geist was with the Max-Planck-Institut f?r Plasmaphysik since 1992 designing together with H. Hartfu? instruments for plasma diagnostics using millimeter waves. Since 1998 he is with the millimeter wave engineering department of Cassidian Electronics at Ulm (previous EADS defence & security division). His work is mainly related with receiver frontends and low noise oscillators.
