Abstract

The measuring system for Thomson scattering diagnostics of the GOL-3 and GDT facilities at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics is described. The system has a modular architecture and is based on eight-channel measuring subsystems, including photodetectors, two-channel recorders (ADC12500), synchronization modules, and the Ethernet/UART communication channel adapter. The photodetectors are based on avalanche photodiodes and are operable in the frequency range of 0–50 MHz. The ADC12500 recorders are used to measure scattering signals with a duration of ~20–30 ns at a sampling rate of to 500 MHz and an amplitude resolution of 12 bits and accumulate data in a buffer memory with a capacity as large as 2 MB.
