The impact of fishbones on neutron rate in beam-heated plasmas in MAST

Cox, Sebastian Penleigh

Description

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]
