Abstract

We report on the results achieved by installing two Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) single crystal diamond detectors in one of the equatorial ports of the Frascati Tokamak Upgrade (FTU) tokamak, during the last six months of operation of the machine. The devices were fabricated at the University of Rome ?Tor Vergata? in a metal/instrinsic/p-type diamond layered structure, allowing them to be used as Schottky photodiodes for VUV and Soft-X ray detection. Both detectors were placed inside the machine and operated in current mode under high vacuum conditions.The fast response capabilities of diamond detectors allowed to observe several plasma events, like the so-called Anomalous Doppler instabilities, the pellet injection and ablation, and Multifaceted Asymmetric Radiation From the Edge (MARFE). Diamond detectors often but not always followed the Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) activity, depending on their localization relative to the emitting region. Core temperature oscillations following Electron Cyclotron Heating system (ECH) modulation were also observed. In addition, the diamond signals were compared to selected channels of the FTU bolometry system with similar line-of-sight: the encouraging results have launched an R&D program for the development of diamond-based bolometers.
