A plasma instability has been associated with loss of fusion rate
in tokamaks since the introduction of beam-heating in the
1980’s: the Fishbone. Losses of fusion rate on tokamaks during
the heating phase present a significant obstacle in reaching the
ignition condition required to harness nuclear fusion as a power
source. If the conditions exacerbating fusion rate losses during
these events can be understood, they can be mitigated.
We examine a wide selection...[Show more]
