Effect of different discharge conditions on the quality of the H-1 vacuum system

You will use the new computer controlled residual gas analyser to compare different regimes of glow discharge conditioning, baking, and pulsed discharge cleaning in their efficiency at removing carbon and oxygen from the internal walls of the H-1 vacuum vessel. This could be extended to analysing the visible spectral lines of full scale H-1 plasma to relate the discharge conditioning to the final improvement in plasma purity.
