Thin foil Faraday collectors were investigated as a diagnostic for lost fast ions from Tokamak fusion plasmas. Initial results from these devices indicated a loss of energetic ions from a variety of plasma conditions. The measured current suggested the viability of thin Faraday collectors as the basis of a lost alpha particle diagnostic for future burning plasma experiments.
