n*kBolt*Te = B**2/(2*mu0) and B^.25 loss scaling? Or not so much? Hopefully we'll know soon...

If the glow is just black body radiation then the color would only tell you the temperature. If it is from the emission spectrum of the gas then perhaps you could infer the composition. The paper you linked was heavy sledding for a non-scientist like me, but it seems to be talking about measuring velocities in a fusor by measuring Doppler shift of the hydrogen alpha spectral line. That implies that the light we see is mainly from the emission spectrum of the neutral gas. So is the characteristic purplish glow I see in many fusor pictures the characteristic color of hydrogen (deuterium)? Is the color visibly different if the gas is helium? And can we tell from the WB-7 picture what gas is present?
