A system to detect ultraviolet emissions from plasma is developed for multi-point measurement, the target of which is the imaging of turbulence with a high temporal resolution. A fluorescent glass, which converts ultraviolet emissions to visible light with a wavelength of approximately 540 nm, is utilized in the system. Following the conversion, the fluorescent light is transferred with fibre optics, and is converted to electric signals in a location that is sufficiently distant from an electrically noisy environment around the plasma device. This paper describes a prototype system of this diagnostic method and discusses the spectral analysis obtained using a low-aspect-ratio reversed field pinch RELAX.
