Description of the activity, including motivation/objectives and experience of the proponent (typically one-two pages)

A triple bundle recently acquired will be used to simultaneously measure three atomic line intensities in Helium plasmas. The goal is to obtain simultaneously the plasma edge electron temperature and density and compare them with other diagnostics as done in the past with a double bundle [1] . Further, the camera exposure time will be reduced to the minimum acceptable value taking into account the Signal to Noise Ratio in order to see if turbulence-relevant times can be achieved (of the order of a few tens of microseconds). If this is possible, the electron density and temperature of Blobs will be measured and see if the plasma turbulence is coupled to the neutral density as proposed in the past [2].

If applicable, International or National funding project or entity
