The objective of the project is to build a diagnostic system to detect the MHD activity of the plasma in the TCABR Tokamak. To determine the spatial region in which magnetic islands are located, will be used a bolometric system of radiation that is installed on TCABR and has a total of 24 cords. To increase the spatial resolution, are needed to improve the system and extends it to 48 cords. So the work lies in building a new bolometric system from an existing one, so it will be capable to detect and localize the MHD activities in TCABR Tokamak. (AU)
