What is it about?

This paper explains how a new multi-frequency reflectometry diagnostic was built for the ASDEX-Upgrade tokamak. This diagnostic allows sampling 7 different positions simultaneously, and it allows us to zoom-in or zoom-out in specific plasma regions.

Why is it important?

Most instruments with multiple frequencies only allow a fixed configuration. Our instrument allows changes to the multi-frequency configuration within experiments and even inside a single discharge!
