The Transient Internal Probe (TIP) is a novel diagnostic designed to measure internal magnetic fields in hot plasmas. Currently, internal magnetic profile measurements are being conducted on the Helicity Injected Tokamak (HIT). HIT is a low aspect ratio tokamak designed to investigate steady state current drive using coaxial helicity injection. Operating parameters are Tθ≈100, nθ≈5 × 1013 cm-3 and Ip = 250 kA. Internal magnetic field profile data is presented. The TIP diagnostic has a spatial resolution of 1cm and 20 gauss magnetic field resolution. System frequency response is 10 MHz.
