ELVA-1 greatly appreciates "A combined millimeter wave and CO2 interferometer on the C-2W Jet plasma" manuscript received from R. J. Smith and TAE Team. 

A two wavelength tangentially viewing multi-chord interferometer has been built for the Jet plasma of the C-2W experiment at TAE Technologies. A novel 1 mm wavelength interferometer has been developed to be used simultaneously with a CO2 laser interferometer to provide full coverage of the Jet plasma and thetranslating field-reversed configuration (FRC) plasma before merging.
