Abstract

Nuclear fusion is probably the most demanding challenge the scientific community is facing. The plasma is a delicate material that has to be properly shaped to achieve a high efficiency fusion process. Unfortunately, the plasma is affected by micro-turbulences still not fully understood, detrimental for the reactor functioning. The diagnostic of plasma is a fundamental technique that needs advanced approaches for a full mapping of the plasma behavior. The 0.346 THz backward wave oscillator is the enabling devices for a high-k plasma diagnostic that will provide unprecedented insight on turbulences leading to full operational fusion reactors. This paper describes the final fabrication phase of the 0.346 THz BWO for plasma diagnostic jointly performed in an international project, involving three leading institutions in vacuum electronics.
