Beam model of Doppler backscattering: theory and experiment

Abstract:

We use beam tracing --- implemented with a newly-written code, Scotty --- in combination with the reciprocity theorem to derive a model for the linear backscattered power of the Doppler Backscattering (DBS) diagnostic. Our model works for both the O-mode and X-mode in tokamak geometry (and certain regimes of stellarators). We present the analytical derivation of our model and its implications on the DBS signal localisation and the wavenumber resolution. To determine these two quantities, we f...
