Fast framing movies of TFTR plasma events

A fast framing camera (Kodak EM1012) running at up to 2000 frames per second is being used at TFTR to observe fast edge phenomena and disruptions. In these short clips, digital sequences have been turned into MPEG movies. For improved clarity, white/black has been inverted...... so darkness is represented by white. Sometimes you can see a camera gating artifact in the first digitizer strip across the top left corner of the image. The horizontal (vertical) resolution is 239 pixels, while the vertical (horizontal) resolution is either 192 pixels ("square" frame) or 96 pixels ("rectangular" frame).

You may want to consult the Plasma/Fusion glossary developed by Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.
