Tomography for Fusion

Keywords: 3D - Data visualization - Visualization - Magnetic fusion - Tomography - Diagnostics - Plasma physics - Ray-tracing - Python

Functional Description: tofu aims at providing the fusion and plasma community with an object-oriented, transparent and documented tool for designing tomography diagnostics, computing synthetic signal (direct problem) as well as tomographic inversions (inverse problem). It gives access to a full 3D description of the diagnostic geometry, thus reducing the impact of geometrical approximations on the direct and, most importantly, on the inverse problem.

Release Functional Description: Python 2.7 is not supported anymore Python 3.6 and 3.7 are supported Several changes to try and make installation easier (on clusters, windows, mac....) and less verbose for users More explicit names for default saved configurations Major bug fix in one of the methods for computing synthetic signal Minor bug fixes in interactive figures Minor bug fixes in Plasma2D interpolation New configuration (ITER) available First version of a class handling 2D XRay bragg spectrometers First tools for magnetic field line tracing available on WEST Better documentation, more ressources More informative error messages extra tools for computing LOS length, closest point to magnetic axis... Better PEP8 compliance
